In Greek mythology Cilix was the overshadowed brother of Cadmus and Europa (founder of Thebes and queen of Crete, respectively). As far as we know, after Cadmus went off on his quest to save his sister, Cilix looked around a bit too, but he eventually gave up and moved to Asia Minor, where the mysterious naming gods of mythological times called the land "Cilicia" after him.
