(Redirected from Alcippe (Greek mythology))
- Alcippe, the daughter of Ares and Aglaulus. When Halirrhotius, son of Poseidon, raped her (or attempted to), Ares killed him, a crime for which he was tried in a court, the first trial in history, which took place on the hill near the Acropolis of Athens named Areopagus, named, according to this etiological myth, after Ares. He was acquitted in court by all of the other Olympian gods.
- Alcippe, an Amazon who vowed to remain a virgin. She was killed by Heracles during his ninth labor.
- Alcippe, mother of Daedalus by Eupalamus, son of Metion.
- Alcippe, one of the Alcyonides, daughters of Alcyoneus. Along with her sisters she threw herself into the sea and was turned into a kingfisher.
- Alcippe, one of the attendants of Helen.
- Alcippe, a princess of Pisa, Elis as the daughter of King Oenomaus and thus, sister of Hippodamia. She married Evenus of Aetolia, the son of Ares and Sterope, by whom she bore a daughter Marpessa.
- Alcippe, the unnamed Mysian daughter of Poseidon and sister of Astraeus. She was mistakenly deflowered by her brother who after realizing what he had done, flung himself to the river Adurus which bore his name (Astraeus) after the incident. The river was later on called Caicus, from the son of Hermes and Ocyrrhoe.
