From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Greek mythology, Metope (Greek: Μετώπη) was a river nymph, the daughter of the river Ladon. Her waters were near the town of Stymphalus in the Peloponnesus. She married the river Asopus by whom she had several daughters, including Aegina ,Salamis, Sinope, Euboea , Tanagra, Thespia, Thebe, Corcyra, Ismene, and Harpina; and possibly sons, including Pelagon and Ismenus. The question of the exact parentage of these children of Asopus is very vague.

Metope is mentioned in Pseudo-Apollodorus III.12.6, Pindar Olympian VI.84, and Diodorus Siculus IV.72.
