In Greek mythology, Liriopê (Ancient Greek: Λιριοπη) or Leiriopê (Ancient Greek: Λειριοπη) is a Boeotian naiad of Thespiae, who was probably the daughter of one of the Boeotian or Phocian river gods. Liriope was raped by the river-god Cephissus, who was himself the son of Pontus and Thalassa, and bore his son Narcissus.[1]
