Heliadae in Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology
and HELIADES (Ἡλιάδαι and (*Hlia/des), that is, the male and
female descendants of Helios, and might accordingly be applied
to all his children, but in mythology the name is given
particularly to the seven sons and the one daughter of Helios
by Rhode or Rhodos. Their names are, Cercaphus, Actis,
Macarcus, Tanages, Triopas, Phaeton, Ochimus, and Electryone.
These names, however, as well as their number, are not the
same in all accounts. (Diod. 5.56, &c.; Schol. ad Pind. Ol.
7.131, &c.) It should be observed that the sisters of Phaeton
are likewise called Heliades. (Ov. Met. 2.340, &c.; Apollon.
4.604.) - A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and
