A naiad, daughter of Poseidon and Amphitrite. She was the wife of the Ethiopian king Enalus. She reared Poseidon's son Eumolpus by Chione. Chione had given birth to Eumolpus unknown to her father, and she flung the child into the deep. But Poseidon picked the child up and conveyed him to Ethiopia, and gave him to Benthesicyme. When he was full grown, Enalus married him to one of his daughters, but when Eumolpus tried to force himself on the other daughter they banished him.
