Mythology & History
Enipeas known since the Homeric years was a most handsome river god. It was one of the devotional monikers given to the god Poseidon and it means noisy. According to Greek mythology Enipeas was a handsome young man desired by all the Olympian goddesses. There is an ancient myth that tells the story of Tyro, the daughter of Salmoneas, king of Ilida.
Tyro was often visiting the shores of Enipeas wailing over the water for her unreciprocated love for him. But Poseidon that was in love with Tyro seized the opportunity and took the form of Enipeas and seduced her right there at the river shores. Later on Poseidon revealed his true identity and foretold her about the birth of her twins.
According to another myth it was at the Enipeas canyon where Orpheus was devoured by the Maenads, and it’s been also told that the gorgeous Lito, mother of the goddess Artemis and the god Apollo, used to bathe there. Local regents up to these days picture Enipeas to be still washing his hair at the river shores.
Moreover, Lucian, a well known orator and satiric writer of the 2nd century A.D dedicated one of his dialogs to the legendary Enipeas.
