It's hard to imagine why the sons of Boreas and Orithyia would help the king of Salmydessus when their sister, Cleopatra, who was married to Phineus, had been thrown with her sons into prison by Phineus, at the instigation of his second wife. But that's another story...

Boreadae vs Harpyiae

Zetes and Calaïs,
Sons of the North Wind, gave
Aid to king Phineus
So he could eat;
Thanks to these Argonauts,
Biharpyharassment
Ceased and desisted; they
Fled in retreat.
