* CEPHAL AND PROCESS
Cephalus, the Thessalian prince, son of Deion and Diomed, had married Procris, one of the daughters of Erechtheus, king of Athens. She was remarkably beautiful. He inspired a passionate passion to Eos (Dawn); The latter, in order to detach him from Procris, induced him to test the fidelity of his wife. For this purpose he introduced himself to her, hidden under a disguise: having succeeded in seducing her, he drove her out of his presence. Procris, ashamed, fled to Crete where Artemis gave him a dog and a magic javelin. Later Procris returned to her home in the form of an attractive young girl who offered her the love of Cephalus in exchange for the gifts of the goddess. Cephalus accepted and Procris was then recognized.
