Despite the name, The Maeonian Drakon plagued the land of Lydia. The savior to the Lydian people was one of the Gigantes, Damasen. The Drakon as it would happen killed a farmer, one of Damasan's friends. Damasan seeking revenge hunted the beast down and slew it by uprooting a tree and slamming it into the Drakon's skull. Damasan then buried the monster.
