Alpheea (Also Alpheonia)

Alpheea (Also Alpheonia)

in Greek mythology, was a surname of Diana, derived from Alpheus, god of the river from whose persecution she was compelled to hide among the nymphs of Letrina, and blacken her face with mud, that the god might not find her. A temple was erected here in her name, and also a statue of black marble in remembrance of this occurrence.
