1. A daughter of Oceanus. When Hephaestus was expelled by Hera from Olympus, Eurynome and Thetis received him in the bosom of the sea. (Hom. Il. xviii, 395, &c.; Apollod. 1.2.2.) Previous to the time of Cronos and Rhea, Eurynome and Ophion had ruled in Olympus over the Titans, but after being conquered by Cronos, she had sunk down into Tartarus or Oceans. (Apollon. 1.503, &c.; Tzetz. ad Ly/coph. 1191.) By Zeus she became the mother of the Charites, or of Asopus. (Hes. Th. 908; Apollod. 3.12.6.)
