Achiroe Summary

Achiroe also known as Anchinoë  

Achiroë or Anchirrhoë (Ancient Greek: Ἀχιρ(ρ)όη), or according to the Bibliotheca Anchinoë (Ἀγχινόη), which is perhaps a mistake for Anchiroë, was in Greek mythology a naiad, a daughter of the river-god Nilus. She was also the wife of Belus, by whom she became the mother of Aegyptus and Danaus, and, according to some accounts, Cepheus, and Phineus. Otherwise, the possible mother of this children and spouse of Belus was called Side, eponym of Sidon in Phoenicia. According to others, Ares begot by her a son, Sithon, and according to Hegesippus also two daughters, Pallenaea and Rhoetea, from whom two towns derived their names.
