Greek mythologywas the wife of Aeacusand mother of Telamonand Peleus. Endeis was the daughter of either the Centaur Chironand the nymphChariclo, or of Scironof Megara. In the latter case her mother was either Charicloor a daughter of Pandionof Athens. Endeis hated her stepson Phocus(Aeacus' son by the Nereid Psamathe) and wished he were dead. It is also thought that Telamon and Peleus were jealous of Phocus because he excelled at athletic sports. In either case they drew lots and Telamon was chosen to murder Phocus, his half brother. This was done in a ruse at the pentathlonwhich they convinced Phocus to participate in. In the sport Telamon threw a discus that was a large stone. It was thrown to look like part of the competition and just an accident, however Teleamon intentionally threw it at Phocus. The projectile hit its target, killing Phocus. Both Telamon and Peleus hid the body of Phocus, but it was soon discovered. For this Aeacus exiled them both from Aegina.
