Kings of Argos - TEMENIDES
http://www.ut.ee/klassik/sht/2000/koiv1.pdf

01. Temenus [Timenos], King of Argos, founds Temenid Dynasty, i.e. the Temenides [his brothers were Aristodemus, King of Lacedaemon [Sparta], & Cresphontes, King of Messene [Thessaly]].
02. Ceisus [see Pausanias II,19,1], son of Temenus .
03. Medon [see Pausanias II,19,2], son of Ceisus.
04. Thestios
05. Merops
06. Aristodamidas
07. Pheidon
08. Lakedes
09. Meltas, son of Lakedas [see Pausanias II,19,2]

According to Theopompos, PHEIDON was the 6th descendant of TEMENUS (Diodoros Siculus VII,17 gives the following pedigree: Temenus - Ceisus - Thestios - Merops - Aristodamidas - Pheidon). According to Marmor Parium he was the11th from Herakles, hence the 7th from Temenus. According to Ephorus, Pheidon was the 10th descendant of Temenos.
The last king of Argos, MELTAS the son of LAKEDES, was in Pausanias account the 10 descendant of Temenos' grandson MEDON (II,19,2). MELTAS' father LAKEDAS is probably identical with PHEIDON's son LEOKEDES, mentioned by Herodotus (VI,126), in which case MELTAS, the last Argive king according to Pausanias, must have been PHEIDON's grandson. And if PHEIDON's grandson was the 10th from
TEMENOS' grandson (MEDON), then PHEIDON himself must have been the 10th from TEMENOS himself, just as we have it in Ephorus.
