CYPARISSUS

ΚΥΠΑΡΙΣΣΟΣ

1. A youth of Cea, a son of Telephus, was beloved by Apollo and Zephyrus or Silvanus. When he had inadvertently killed his favourite stag, he was seized with immoderate grief, and metamorphosed into a cypress. (Ov. Met. x. 120, &c.; Serv. ad Aen. iii. 64, 680, Eclog. x. 26, Georg. i. 20.)

2. Another Cyparissus is mentioned by Eustathius. (Ad Hom. Il. ii. 519.)
