Xenea - The name for of a Naiad who loved a man named Daphnis, son of the messenger god Hermes and a Nymph. Daphnis was a Sicilian hero to whom the invention of bucolic poetry is ascribed. Xenea fell in love with him, and made Daphnis promise never to sleep with any other maiden, adding the threat that he should become blind if he violated his vow. For the longest time the handsome Daphnis resisted all the numerous temptations to which he was exposed, but at last he forgot himself, having been made intoxicated by a princess. The Naiad Xenea as promised punished him with blindness, or, as others claim, transformed him into a stone.
