Πειρήνη). The spring struck out by the winged steed Pegasus on the citadel of Corinth. (See Pegasus.) It is also said to have sprung from Pirené, daughter of Oebalus, who melted into tears in sorrow for the loss of her son Cenchrias, accidentally slain by Artemis (Pausan. ii. 2, 3). It flowed from a rock in the Acrocorinthus (see Corinthus), and was conveyed by subterranean conduits down the hill to a marble reservoir, from which the city received a great part of its watersupply.
