The wife of Agenor, and mother of Europa, Cadmus, Phoenix, and Cilix. She, with her sons, went out in search of Europa, who had been carried off by Zeus; but she died on the expedition, and was buried by Cadmus. (Apollod. iii. 1. § 1.) Moschus (ii. 42) calls her the wife of Phoenix, the son of Agenor, and the Scholiast on Euripides (Ion, 5) calls her Telephe.
