Daedalion

Daedalion (little Daedalus)vIn Greek mythology, a young man, son of Phosphorus; brother of Ceyx; father of Chione (Philonis). He was loved by the gods Apollo and Hermes. His daughter Chione slept with both Apollo and Hermes and gave birth to twins. When she was turned into a hawk by Artemis for rejecting her love, Daedalion jumped from the summit of Mount Parnassus. Apollo then changed him into a hawk. The myth is told in Ovid’s Metamorphoses (book 11).
