The Pleiad Electra (//; Greek: Ἠλέκτρα, Ēlektra "amber", "shining," and "bright.") of Greek mythology was one of the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione. Electra was the wife of Corythus, to whom she bore Iasion. She was seduced by Zeus and gave birth to Dardanus. One author claim that Dardanus' real father was Corythus.
According to one legend, she was the lost Pleiad, disappearing in grief after the destruction of Troy. She was called Atlantis by Ovid, personifying the family of Pleiades.
