He was a son of Demeter and Carmanor, the priest who cleansed Apollo for the killing of Python.[7] After being the victor of the first Pythian games, Chrysothemis is said to have consorted with Apollo to produce a child. (In this case, however, Chrysothemis was considered to be the daughter of Demeter and Carmanor) [8]
