In Greek mythology, Enarete (/ɪˈnærɪt/, Ancient Greek: Ἐναρέτη "virtuous" literally "in virtue", from en "in" and arete "virtue") or Aenarete (Ancient Greek: Αἰναρέτη Ainarete), was the daughter of Deimachus and wife of Aeolus, thus becoming an ancestor of the Aeolians.[1] Her children were Cretheus, Sisyphus, Athamas, Salmoneus, Deion, Magnes, Perieres, Canace, Alcyone, Peisidice, Calyce, and Perimede.[2] She may have been the mother of Arne, if the Aeolus who was her husband was the same Aeolus who fathered Arne.[3][4]

NotesEdit

  1. ^ Enarete is the form found in the manuscripts of Bibliotheca 1.7.1, which West (1985, pp. 59–60) takes to be a misspelling of Aenarete, the form written in the scholia to Plato, Minos 315c, since Enarete cannot stand in a hexameter line and the Bibliotheca's primary source at this point is the epic Hesiodic Catalogue of Women. At scholia to Pindar, Pythian Odes 4.252 yet another form—Enarea (Ἐνάρεα or Ἐναρέᾱ)—is found.
  2. ^ Pseudo-Apollodorus. Bibliotheca, 1.7.3
  3. ^ Pausanias, Graeciae Descriptio 9.40.5
  4. ^ However, Diodorus Siculus, Bibliotheca historica 4.67, states that the father of Arne was the great-grandson of Aeolus, husband of Enarete
