In Greek mythology, Aesepus was the son of the naiad Abarbarea and Bucolion. His twin brother was Pedasus; the pair appears briefly in the Iliad, Book VI. Both men fought in the Trojan War and were killed by Euryalus, the son of Mecisteus. Aesepus is also the name of a river-god, one of the sons of Oceanus and Tethys.
