admetus - Admetus;
admetus - In Greek legend, son of Pheres, king of Pherae in Thessaly. He took part in the Calydonian boar-hunt and the voyage of the Argonauts. The devotion of his wife, Alcestis, is the subject of a play by Euripides, freely adapted by Browning in Balaustioa's Adventure. Apollo having obtained from the Fates the promise that Admetus should never die if somebody else consented to die in his stead, Alcestis volunteered to take his place. In Euripides, she is said to have been restored to her husband by Hercules. In another story, Persephone allowed her to return to earth.
