In the Greek Mythology, Télégonos (in Greek old Τηλέγονος / Têlégonos , “which was born with far”) would be one of three wire that Circé had with Ulysses, brother of Agrios and Latinos. Certain traditions give him sometimes for mother Calypso.
It was born in the island from Ééa, where Circé remained and where Ulysses stopped some time during his adventures, after the seat from Troy. A long time afterwards, informed by his/her mother of her origins, Télégonos made the voyage to Ithaque with some companions to know his father. Having been thrown on the coasts of Ithaque without knowing it, it went to make vivres with his companions who delivered themselves to plundering. Ulysses, to the head of Ithaciens, came to push back these foreigners: there was combat on the shore, and Télégonos struck Ulysses of a lance whose end was made of a poisonous dart of Raie. Ulysses, mortally wounded, remembered then an oracle which had informed it to be wary with the hand of his/her son; he got informed about the identity from abroad and his origin. He recognized Télégonos and died in his arms. Athéna comforted them both, in their saying that such was the order of the destiny: she ordered even in Télégonos to marry Pénélope and to carry in Circé the body of Ulysses to make him return the honors of the burial. Marriage of Pénélope and Télégonos was born Italos which, according to certain authors, gave its name to the Italy.
His/her mother made it immortal and sent it with Pénélope in the Îles of the Happy.
