ATLANTEIA & PHOIBE
Of Mount Atlas
ATLANTEIA and PHOIBE (Phoebe) were Hamadryad-nymphs of Libya in north Africa. They were wives of the Libyan King Danaus who bore him ten of his fifty Danaid daughters.
The names Atlanteia and Phoibe might suggest they were star-nymph daughters of the Titan Atlas rather than simple tree-nymphs.
Perhaps the Titan ATLAS , though nowhere stated

Pseudo-Apollodorus, Bibliotheca 2. 17 (trans. Aldrich) (Greek mythographer C2nd A.D.) :
"[The fifty daughters of Danaus married the fifty sons of Aigyptos (Aegyptus) :] Hippodameia went to Istros, Rhodia to Khalkodon (Chalcodon), Kleopatra (Cleopatra) to Agenor, Asteria to Khaetos (Chaetus), Phylodameia to Diokorystos (Diocorystus), Glauke (Glauce) to Alkes (Alces), Hippomedousa to Alkmenor (Alcmenor), Gorge to Hippothous, Iphimedousa to Eukhenor (Euchenor), and Rhode to Hippolytos. These ten sons had an Arabian mother, while the girls were the daughters variously of Atlanteia and Phoibe (Phoebe), two Hamadryas Nymphai (Hamadryad Nymphs)."
