Cyllene the nymph[edit]

An oread, makes sense. But two-thirds of the sources have her a Naiad instead (e.g. http://homepage.mac.com/cparada/GML/Lycaon2.html). She was the mother (or spouse) of Lycaon, king of Arcadia, by Pelasgus (yet other authors have Lycaon's mother as Meliboea or Dejanira). Note that the Pleiade Maia dwelt in a cave on Mount Kyllene, and there she had many a secret encounter with Zeus and bore him the god Hermes.

pronunciation[edit]

Robert Fagle's translation of the Iliad, along with Morford & Lenardon's Classical Mythology and Tripp's Meridian Handbook of Classical Mythology, have si-lee'-nee. However, Fagle's Odyssey has sye-lee'-nee. --kwami 02:46, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Hi, question. It's my understanding that in Greek, all Cs are pronounced as a K. Is this different when followed by a y? I only ask because Pluto's moon, Cerberos, is pronounced with a K sound, even though the next letter is a vowel. So, how is Cyllene pronounced "sy lee nee?" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.141.210.50 (talk) 20:26, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

The Plutonian moon is spelt Kerberos, so it gets a /k/ in pronunciation: normally the name of the mythological hound is Cerberus, starting with /s/ in English, but that would have created a naming conflict. Hence for example Helike the moon has /k/, but traditionally her name is spelt Helice and pronounced with /s/. So Cyllene is spelt with a c and is pronounced with an initial /s/.
