- Chrysopeleia (mythology)
The tree in which Chrysopeleia dwelt was put in danger by the waters of a flooding river. She was rescued by Arcas, who happened to be hunting in the neighborhood: he rerouted the river and secured the tree with a dam. Chrysopeleia became his lover and bore him two sons, Apheidas and Elatus.
