*Kupa/rissos), a youth of Cea, a son of Telephus, was beloved by Apollo and Zephyrus or Silvanus. When he had inadvertently killed his favourite stag, he was seized with immoderate grief, and metamorphosed into a cypress. (Ov. Met. 10.120, &c.; Serv. ad Aen. 3.64, 680, Eclog. 10.26, Georg. 1.20.) Another Cyparissus is mentioned by Eustathius. (Ad Hom. Il. 2.519.)
