Skamandros was a son of Okeanos & Tethys. He ruled over the largest river in Troy. Skamandros was the river-god of the Troad in north-western Anatolia (modern Turkey). Skamandros' river had its headwaters at the foot of Mount Ida. Its mouth was close to the entrance to the Hellespont. Tributaries that flow into Skamandros' river include Kebren, Simoeis and Heptaporos. The Rhodios and Satnioeis are the closest large rivers near Skamandros.
During the Trojan War, Skamandros attempted to drown the nearly invincible Akhilles. Hephaistos however interceded and drove Skamandros back by using flames.
