ΑΠΑΤΟΥΡΙΑ

That is, the deceitful.

1. A surname of Athena, which was given to her by Aethra. (Paus. ii. 33. § 1.) [See AETHRA.]

2. A surname of Aphrodite at Phanagoria and other places in the Taurian Chersonesus, where it originated, according to tradition, in this way : Aphrodite was attacked by giants, and called Heracles to her assistance. He concealed himself with her in a cavern, and as the giants approached her one by one, she surrendered them to Heracles to kill them. (Strab. xi. p. 495; Steph. Byz. s. v. Apatouron.)
