Delphyne is a female dragon in Greek mythology. Her mother was Gaea who gave her the task of guarding the oracle of Delphi. She was often accompanied by a male dragon, either Python or Typhon. Due to the different accounts and sources, she was sometimes mixed with Echidna, the mother of all monsters, who was half woman and half snake. In another source, Delphyne was appointed with guarding the sinews of Zeus, who were stolen by Typhon, and she was eventually slain by Apollo.
