In Greek mythology, Scamander was a river god who fought for Troy during the Trojan War. He was also considered a personification of the Scamander River, along the lower plains of which the battles of the Trojan War were fought, according to The Iliad. The river is now called Karamenderes and flows through the Turkish province of Çanakkale. It is also the name of a town and a river in Tasmania.
