In Greek mythology Philonis (Ancient Greek: Φιλωνίς) was an Attican daughter of Daedalion[1] or of Eosphoros and Cleoboea,[2] from Thoricus. In some accounts, King Deion of Phocus was also called the father of Philonis[3] making her one of the Aeolids, her mother was probably Diomede, daughter of Xuthus. She was the mother of Philammon and Autolycus by Apollo and Hermes, respectively.[4] In some accounts, the mother of Philammon was called Chione[5] or Leuconoe.[6]
