Metope, river nymph

 In Greek mythology, Metope was described as, a the Naiad nymph of the springs and stream, the daughter of the river Ladon. She married the river god Asopus by whom she had several (either 12 or 20) daughters, including Aegina, Salamis, Sinope, Euboea, Tanagra, Thespia, Thebe, Corcyra, Ismene, and Harpina; and possibly sons, including Pelagon and Ismenus. Her waters may have been regarded as the source of the Arkadian river Ladon and the Sikyonian Asopus, the streams of her father and husband respectively.
