Theseus against Sinis, Sciron, Procrustes and the Marathonian bull, Panaitios painter

In Greek mythology, Siris or Sinis was killed by Theseus.

He tied people to two pine trees which he bent down to the ground, then let the trees go, tearing his victims apart. Theseus killed him the same way and married his daughter, Perigune, with whom he fathered Melanippus.

Ovid VII, 440
