ACHIROE

ΑΧΙΡΟΗ

Or according to Apollodorus (ii. 1. § 4) Anchinoë, which is perhaps a mistake for Anchiroë, was a daughter of Nilus, and the wife of Belus, by whom she became the mother of Aegyptus and Danaus. According to the scholiast on Lycophron (583 and 1161), Ares begot by her a son, Sithon, and according to Hegesippus (ap. Steph. Byz. s. v. Pallênê), also two daughters, Pallenaea and Rhoetea, from whom two towns derived their names.
