Acacallis

A nymph, and yet another victim (whether willing or not) of Apollo’s versatile courting techniques. She bore him two offspring, Philander (named in honor of his father?) and Phylacis. These children were exposed to the wild beasts of Crete, but a motherly goat nursed them and preserved their lives.
