Diomedes is the name of many characters of Greek mythology

Diomedes of Argos

Diomedes, son of Tydeus, is a Greek warrior character in Homer's Iliad, under command of Agamemnon. He was the leader of the Epigoni, the sons of the Seven Against Thebes. His father was offered immortality by Athena, but the offer was retracted when she saw Tydeus eat his enemies' brains. He later became King of Argos, succeeding his grandfather Adrastus (who numbered among the Seven Against Thebes). He is a fifth generation descendant of Endymion (his great-great-great grandfather) and Selene.
