    I think the answer is ‘Perseus’ based on this being his funeral car. Good luck everyone

    Lydia isn't currently used... Various other sites say that Lydia and Perseus were both in his funeral train with Lydia being the one his family travelled in. Which suggests Pansy might be right.

    (Of course - there is no guarantee that the question-setter is right...)
