NEILOS (Apollodorus 2.11)
AIGYPTOS, DANAUS, KEPHEUS, PHINEUS (by Belos) (Apollodorus 2.11)
ACHI′ROE (Achiroê), or according to Apollodorus (ii. 1. § 4) Anchinoë, which is perhaps a mistake for Anchiroë, was a daughter of Nilus, and the wife of Belus, by whom she became the mother of Aegyptus and Danaus.
