In the Dionysiaca of Nonnus (early 5th century), Lelantos, or Lelantus (Greek: Λήλαντος) is the Titan father of the nymph Aura ("Breeze"),[1] who was the mother, by Dionysus, of Iacchus, a minor diety connected with the Eleusinian mysteries.[2] Lelantos was married to the Oceanid Periboia, whom Nonnus seems to imply was Aura's mother,[3] although elsewhere, he calls Aura the "daughter of Cybele".[4]
