CEPHISSUS

ΚΗΦΙΣΣΟΣ

The divinity of the river Cephissus, is described as a son of Pontus and Thalassa, and the father of Diogeneia and Narcissus, who is therefore called Cephisius. (Hygin. Fab. Praef.; Apollod. iii. 5. § 1; Ov. Met. iii. 343, &c.) He had an altar in common with Pan, the Nymphs, and Achelous, in the temple of Amphiaraus near Oropus. (Paus. i. 34. 2.)
