Oenone

by Micha F. Lindemans
A Phrygian nymph who lived on Mount Ida. She was the daughter of the river-god Cebren. She was abducted by Paris and she became his first wife. Their son is Corythus. When she was abandoned by her husband, she died of grief. She prophesied the disastrous consequence of his voyage to Greece and, on Paris' death, killed herself. According to other sources, Paris summoned her when he was mortally wounded, since she possessed healing skills. Because of his infidelity, she refused to heal him, but when he died, she threw herself on his funeral pyre and was burned with him.
