Nicippe was a name given to different figures in Greek mythology,. One of them was a daughter of Thespius and Megamede, one of fifty siblings in total. She was a lover of Heracles, with whom she had a son, Antimachus. Another one was the daughter of Pelops and Hippodamia, who was the wife of Sthenelus; together they had three children, Alcyone, Medusa, and Eurystheus. A different figure by the same name was a priestess of the goddess Demeter; the goddess took the form of Nicippe in order to stop Erysichthon from destroying a sacred grove.
