AchiroŽ
or AnchirrhoŽ (Greek : ), or according to Apollodorus AnchinoŽ ([1] which is perhaps a mistake for AnchiroŽ, was in Greek mythology a naiad , a daughter of the river-god Nilus . She was also the wife of Belus , by whom she became the mother of Aegyptus and Danaus , and, according to some accounts, Cepheus , and Phineus .[2] According to the scholiast on Lycophron ,[3] Ares begot by her a son, Sithon, and according to Hegesippus ,[4] also two daughters, Pallenaea and Rhoeteia, from whom two towns derived their names.[5]
