3. A daughter of Priam and Hecabe, and the wife of Aeneias, who became by her the father of Ascanius and Iulus. (Apollod. 3.12.5.) Conon (Narrat. 41) calls her the mother of Anius by Apollo. When Aeneias fled from Troy, she followed him; but she was unable to discover his traces, and disappeared. Aeneias then returned to seek her. She then appeared to him as a shade, consoled him, revealed to him his future fate, and informed him that she was kept back by the great mother of the gods, and was obliged to let him depart alone. (Verg. A. 2.725, 738, 752, 769, 775, &c.) In the Lesche of Delphi she was represented by Polygnotus among the captive Trojan women. (Paus. 10.26.1.) A fourth personage of this name is mentioned by Hyginus. (Fab. 25; comp. [CREON, No. 1].)
