Unsolved:Cleone (mythology)

From HandWiki

In Greek mythology, Cleone (Ancient Greek: Κλεώνη Kleônê) or Kleonai (Κλεωναὶ) was one of the naiad daughters of the river-god Asopus[1] and possibly Metope, the river-nymph daughter of the river Ladon.[2] She was the sister of Pelasgus (Pelagon[3]), Ismenus, Chalcis, Corcyra, Salamis, Sinope, Aegina, Peirene, Thebe, Tanagra, Thespia, Asopis, Ornea[2] and Harpina.[4]

The city of Cleonae in Argos was said to be named after her, otherwise from Cleones, son of Pelops.[1]
