Chione, a daughter of Daedalion, who was beloved by Apollo and I ermes on account of her beauty. She gave birth to twins, Autolycus and Philammon, the former a son of Hermes and the latter of Apollo. She was killed by Artemis for having found fault with the beauty of that goddess, and her father in his grief threw himself from a rock of Parnassus, but in falling he was changed by Apollo into a hawk. Chione is also called Philonis. (Ov. Met. xi. 300, &c.; Hygin. Fab. 200)
