Stratius, in Grecian mythology, was a son of Clymenus. The latter having been slain by a Theban, Erginus, his successor, imposed on the Thebans an annual tribute of a hundred bullocks in punishment. After twenty years, the messengers who were dispatched to demand the tribute were sent back by Hercules empty, and with the loss of their hands and noses. Among them was Stratius, who died of his wounds (Pausan. 9, 37,1).
