Cecrops II, legendary King of Athens, dies after a reign of 40 years and is succeeded by his son Pandion II. Pandion II was later driven into exile from Athens by the sons of Cecrops II’s brother (or possibly nephew) Metion, so that Metion could take power. Pandion II fled to Megara, where he married the King’s daughter and eventually inherited the throne. After his death, Pandion II’s sons returned to Athens and drove out the sons of Metion.
