Niobe (daughter of Phoroneus)
In Greek mythology, Niobe (Ancient Greek: Νιόβη) was a daughter of Phoroneus and the mother by Zeus of Argus, who was the eponym of Argos and sometimes, Pelasgus. She is not to be confused with the more famous Niobe, who was punished for boasting that she had more children that Leto. According to Pausanias, the Argives of his day said that she had a daughter named Meliboea, later called Chloris, a statue of whom Praxiteles had crafted for the Sanctuary of Leto in Argos.
