Thesprotus, whose name passed to Thesprotia, a region in southern Epirus, gi ve shelter to Pelopia, the daughter of Thyestes. We are told little a out him, but perhaps we may risk interpreting his name as 'first law', from thesmos, 'rule', 'law' and protos, 'first'. Admittedly, it is hard to see what precisely this 'first law' was or could be.
