  Oenomaus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Greek mythology, King Oenomaus of Pisa was the son of Ares by Sterope (or by Harpina daughter of Phliasian Asopus) and father of Hippodamia.
Oenamaus had pursued a thirteen suitors of Hippodamia and killed them all after beating them in a chariot race (because Poseidon or Ares had given him swift or winged horses).
Pelops (or alternatively, Hippodamia herself) convinced Myrtilus (by promising him half of Oenomaus kingdom), Oenomaus' charioteer to remove the linchpins attaching the wheels to the chariot.

 Classical CD Reviews- Feb 1999 ZDENEK FIBICH Hippodamia Trilogy Music on the Web (UK)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In Act 1 of the first of the cycle Hippodamia kisses the severed and impaled head of one of her hapless suitors who failed in the contest for her hand.
The Fibich’s slightly Schumann-inflected language is leavened by the flest of brass contributions underlining the dark skein of intrigue and lust.
Hippodamia is tormented by her multiple levels of guilt.

 Pelops 1, Greek Mythology Link.
Wishing to marry this princess, Pelops 1 came to the residence of Oenomaus 1 asking for the hand of Hippodamia 3, but when he saw the nailed heads of his predecessors Pelops 1 regretted having come, for the king's horses were known to be swifter than the wind.
And either because Myrtilus, son of Hermes, expected to rule over half of the kingdom, or because he was himself in love with Hippodamia 3, he did not insert the linchpins in the boxes of the wheels of his master's chariot.
As they refused, Hippodamia 3 visited at night Laius 1 and Chrysippus 2 when they were asleep, and taking the sword of the Theban, she wounded Chrysippus 2 and fixed the sword in his body, so that Laius 1 would be suspected.

 Pirithous, Greek Mythology Link.
Pirithous and Hippodamia 4 had a son Polypoetes 1 who fought at Troy and survived the war; he is one of those who buried the seer Calchas at Colophon, in Asia Minor, when the Trojan War was over.
One day Hippodamia 4 died, and then Pirithous and Theseus, who had grown older, conceived new and extraordinary ideas with regard to women: they decided to marry daughters of Zeus.
Hippodamia 4, or as some call her Deidamia 3, was daughter of Butes 6, son of Boreas 1 (the North Wind; see WINDS).

 Charioteering   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Heroes are frequently commemorated with chariot races as part of their funeral games, and great prizes are won as the result of a race that should be impossible to win.
Also, where the funeral games of Patroklos are a fair, splendid honoring of the dead, the chariot race for the hand of Hippodamia is an unfairly fixed race through which her father has unjustly claimed the lives of many suitors.
The suitor to outrace Oenomaus, with Hippodamia in his chariot, would be given the maiden's hand in marriage.

Back to earth, Pelops later fell in love with Hippodamia, the daughter of Oenomaus, a king of Pisa, a city of Elis in Peloponnese.
Yet, to win the hand of Hippodamia, suitors were subjected to a trial by her father : they had to beat him at a chariot race to the altar of Poseidon in Corinth in which he competed with godly horses offered him by Ares, or else be killed by him.
Pelops managed to win the race with the help of Hippodamia, who had fallen in love with him, and Myrtilus, Oenomaus' chariot driver, who sabotaged his master's chariot.

[E.2.6] So Pelops also came a-wooing; and when Hippodamia saw his beauty, she conceived a passion for him, and persuaded Myrtilus, son of Hermes, to help him; for Myrtilus was charioteer to Oenomaus.
[E.2.8] Pelops, therefore, got Hippodamia; and on his journey, in which he was accompanied by Myrtilus, he came to a certain place, and withdrew a little to fetch water for his wife, who was athirst; and in the meantime Myrtilus tried to rape her.
But when Pelops learned that from her, he threw Myrtilus into the sea, called after him the Myrtoan Sea, at Cape Geraestus; and Myrtilus, as he was being thrown, uttered curses against the house of Pelops.

Interpretive Summary: The boll weevil, the corn earworm, the beet armyworm, cotton aphids, and the tobacco budworm are important insect pests of cotton and other agricultural crops, and infestations of the pests can significantly reduce yield.
The wasps, Bracon mellitor, Cardiochiles nigriceps, and Cotesia marginiventris, and the predators, Coleomegilla maculata, Geocoris punctipes, and Hippodamia convergens, are predominant natural enemies of these pests.
The purpose of this study was to determine the toxicity of three insecticides, the experimental compound numbered S-1812, Tracer, and Karate, to these natural enemies.
