Λαῖλαψ). The storm-wind, personified as the swift dog, which Procris had received from Artemis and gave to her husband, Cephalus. When the Teumessian fox was sent to punish the Thebans, Cephalus sent the dog Laelaps against the fox. The dog overtook the fox, but Zeus changed both animals into a stone, which was shown in the neighbourhood of Thebes. See Hyg. Fab. 28; Ovid, Met. vii. 771; and Teumessus.
