Fiavaque Laodice. There are many nymphs of this name, mentioned by ancient poets; one the daughter of Priam and Hecuba, and wife to Helicaon; another, the daughter of Agamemnon, offered in marriage to Achilles; a third, the daughter of Cygnus. Poets speak also of a nymph of this name, the mother of Apis and Niobe. It is uncertain which was the Laodice of Neptune; but most probably the daughter of Priam.Coeloque recepta Celaeno. Celaeno was the daughter of Atlas and Pleione, and one of the Pleiades. We have seen before that all the sisters, daughters of Atlas, were received into heaven, and there form the system of stars called by the Greeks Pleiades, and by the Romans Vergiliae.
