Aegialeia is in Greek mythology, the daughter of Adrastus of Argos and Amphithea; wife of Diomedes, sister of Argeia, Aegialeus, Cyanippus, Deipyle, and Hippodameia.
In her husband’s absence during the Trojan War, Aegialeia prostituted herself to her servants, chiefly Cometes, whom the king had left master of the house. When Diomedes learned of Aegialeia’s unfaithfulness, he settled in Daunia.
