Silver-Faced (argyros, ops)
ARGIOPE was a Naiad-nymph of Mount Parnassos in Phokis (central Greece) and later Odrysia in Thrake (north of Greece). She was the mother of the bard Thamyris by Philammon.
Argiope's name means "Silver-Faced" from the Greek words argyros and ops which suggests she was the nymph of a mountain spring or stream.
Perhaps a daughter of the River KEPHISOS
THAMYRIS (by Philammon) (Apollodorus 1.16, Pausanias 4.33.3)
ARGI′OPE (Argiopê), a nymph by whom Philammon begot the celebrated bard, Thamyris. She lived at first on mount Parnassus, but when Philammon refused to take her into his house as his wife, she left Parnassus and went to the country of the Odrysians in Thrace. (Apollod. i. 3. § 3 ; Paus. iv. 33. § 4.)
