Alcippe (Greek mythology)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- Alcippe, the daughter of Ares and Aglaulus. When Halirrhotius, son of Poseidon, raped her (or merely attempted to), Ares killed him, a crime for which he was tried in a court, the first trial in history, which took place on the hill near the Acropolis of Athens named Areopagus, named, according to this etiological myth, after Ares. He was acquitted in court by all of the other Olympian gods.
- Alcippe, an Amazon who vowed to remain a virgin. She was killed by Heracles during his ninth labor.
- Alcippe, one of the Alcyonides, daughters of Alcyoneus. Along with her sisters she threw herself into the sea and was turned into a kingfisher.
- Alcippe, daughter of Oenomaus. She married Evenus, son of Ares and Sterope and bore a daughter Marpessa.
