Famed for Grace (kleos, kharis)
KLEOKHAREIA (Cleochareia) was a Naiad-nymph of the river Eurotas in Lakonia (southern Greece). She was the wife of Lelex, the region's first earth-born king.
Probably a daughter of OKEANOS or the River EUROTAS (assuming her son merely gave his name to the stream)
EUROTAS (by Lelex) (Apollodorus 3.116)
