A third woman by the same name was a maid of Metanira, wife of Celeus. When the goddess Demeter, disguised as the old woman Doso, tried to turn Metanira's son Demophon to an immortal by burning his flesh in the hearth, it was Praxithea who found them and started screaming, thus interrupting the ritual.
A different Praxithea was one of the daughters of Leos, the others being Theope and Eubule. The three sisters sacrificed themselves to save the city of Athens.
Finally, the fifth mythological figure with the same name was one of the fifty daughters of Thespius and Megamede, who married Heracles and had a son together, Nephus.
