In Greek mythology, Cleodora or Kleodora /kləˈdɔərə/ was one of the prophetic Thriai, nymphs who divined the future by throwing stones or pebbles. She and her sisters Melaina and Daphnis lived on Mount Parnassus in Phocis and was loved by Poseidon. With Poseidon (or Kleopompos), she became the mother of Parnassus.[1] Her father was the local river-god Cephissus of northern Boeotia. There was probably a spring or well near Delphi that she once inhabited.
