Biblis or Byblus by William Bouguereau - Art Print
Biblis; In Greek mythology, Byblis or Bublis was a daughter of Miletus. Her mother was either Tragasia, Cyanee, daughter of the river-god Meander, or Eidothea, daughter of King Eurytus of Caria. She fell in love with Caunus, Apollo's grandson and her twin brother. Despite her initial efforts to convince herself that her feelings were natural, she realized the inappropriateness of them. Unable to keep her love for Caunus a secret from him any longer, she sent him a long love letter through a servant giving examples of other incestuous relationships between the gods. Disgusted, he ran away. Believing that she could yet make him love her, she was determined to try to woo him once more. When she found out that he had fled, she tore her clothes in sadness and was driven into madness. She followed him through much of Greece and Asia Minor until she finally died, tired and sad. She was changed into a spring.\n1884/Private\n
