A daughter of Aeolus, presumably by Melanippe, the daughter of Chiron, from whom the Boeotian town Arne (afterwards called Chaeroneia), as well as the Thessalian Arne, were believed to have derived their name.

She might be the same as the Melanippe who became the mother of Aeolus III and Boeotus by Poseidon.
