6 Muses or Nymphs


In Greek mythology, Rheane was a nymph of Mount Cyllene. She was a paramour of Oileus and mother of his son Medon, although some suggest that Oileus fathered Medon with Alcimache. In one source, Rheane is given as the mother of Oileus’ another son, Ajax the Lesser, as well, though the latter is more commonly said to be the son of Oileus’ legitimate wife Eriopis.

Rheane was also a lover of Hermes and mother by him of Saon (or Samon) ofSamothrace.
