*Xrusope/leia), a hamadryad who was one day in great danger, as the oak-tree which she inhabited was undermined by a mountain torrent. Areas, who was hunting in the neighbourhood, discovered her situation, led the torrent in another direction, and secured the tree by a dam. Chrysopeleia became by Areas the mother of Elatus and Apheidas. (Apollod. 3.9.1; Tzetz. ad Lycoph. 480.)
