Perpetrator of, it is said, the first murder of a relative in the world, Ixion reneged on his promise to provide many splendid gifts to Deioneus, on the marriage of Ixion to his daughter, Dia. When Deioneus came looking for the promised tribute, Ixion caused him to fall into a pit of fire which he had prepared. For this act he was punished by the gods with lunacy, and wandered the Earth mad, until Zeus received and purified him.However, Ixion then conceived a passion for Hera, and lay with her, fathering the race of the Centaurs. Rash enough to boast about the fact, he was despatched by Zeus to Tartaros, where he was bound to a huge revolving wheel, by Hermes.
