In Greek mythology Teucer, also Teucrus or Teucris from Greek Τεύκρος, was the son of King Telamon of Salamis and his second wife Hesione, daughter of King Laomedon of Troy.
Teucer was the nephew of King Priam of Troy and so the cousin of Hector and Paris - all of whom he fought against in the Trojan War.
Because of his half-brother's suicide, Teucer was disowned by his father and emigrated to Cyprus, where he founded the city of Salamis which he named after his home state.

 Teucer by Sir W. Hamo Thorneycroft   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Teucer was first exhibited at the Royal Academy as a lifesize plaster in 1881 and in bronze in 1882.
Apart from its natural aesthetic beauty, the tremendous strength in the modelling of the muscles and the capturing of an instant in time as the arrow is released, the work was a landmark in sculpture maintaining a perfect balance despite its revolutionary right angled form.
The subject of Teucer is taken from the Iliad, he was the archer who fired at Hector eight times, shown in this work he has just released his last arrow and is captured in that moment of intense concentration as he watches it fly towards its target.

Then Teucer wounded Glaucus the brave son of Hippolochus as he was coming on to attack the wall.
Teucer hit him with an arrow on the band that bore the shield which covered his body, but Jove saved his son from destruction that he might not fall by the ships' sterns.

Teucer received a Crafts Council development award in 2001.

Teucer successfully defeats Menelaus in a flyting exchange through a display of linguistic trumping and debunking.
Teucer’s flyting thus disrupts the chorus’ and the Atreids’ imagery and assumptions concerning ‘big’ and ‘small’ men.

Teucer bids him as a suppliant embrace his father's body, and then hold in his hand locks of hair cut from the child, his mother and Teucer himself, as offerings to the dead:
