ΛΑΟΔΙΚΗ

1. A Hyperborean maiden, who, together with Hyperoche, and five companions, was sent from the country of the Hyperboreans to carry sacrifices to the island of Delos. (Herod. iv. 33.)

2. A nymph, by whom Phoroneus became the father of Apis and Niobe. (Apollod. ii. 1. § 1.)

3. A daughter of Cinyras, and the mother of Stymphalus and Pereus. (Apollod. iii. 9. § 1, 14. § 3.)

4. A daughter of Priam and Hecabe, and the wife of Helicaon. (Hom. Il. iii. 123; Paus. x. 26.) According to another tradition, she was the beloved of Acamas, the son of Theseus, who, with Diomedes, went as ambassador to Troy, and by whom she became the mother of Munitus. (Parthen. Erot. 16.) On the death of this son, Laodice, in her grief, leaped down a precipice (Lycoph. 497), or was swallowed up by the earth. (Tzetz. ad Lycoph. 513, 547.) Pausanias (l. c.) saw her represented in the Lesche of Delphi, among the captive Trojan women. Hyginus (Fab.]01) calls her the wife of Telephus.

5. A daughter of Agamemnon and Clytaemnestra (Hom. Il. ix. 146), but the tragic poets call her Electra. (Hesych. s. v.; ELECTRA.)
