Canace

Κανάκη), a daughter of Aeolus and Enarete, whence she is called Aeolis (Callim. Hymn. in Cer. 100), who had several children by Poseidon. (Apollod. 1.7.3, &c.) She entertained an unnatural love for her brother Macareus, and on this account was killed by her own father; but according to others, she herself, as well as Macareus, put an end to her life. (Hyg. Fab. 238, 242; Ov. Ep. 11.)
