Ιστορικές προσωπικότητες


Γιος του Δηίονα, έδιωξε μαζί με τον Αμφιτρύωνα τους μέχρι τότε κατοίκους, τους Τηλεβόες, και κατοίκησε ο ίδιος στην Κεφαλλονιά και της έδωσε το όνομά του (Παυσ. 1,37,6).

   Cephalus, (Kephalos). The son of Deion, and a grandson of Aeolus, married to Procris, the eldest daughter of Erechtheus. They dwelt at Thoricos in Attica, and lived happily together till curiosity to try the fidelity of his wife entered the mind of Cephalus. Feigning a journey of eight years, he disguised himself and came to Procris with a splendid jewel, which he offered to her on dishonourable terms. After much hesitation she yielded, when her husband discovered himself and reproached her with her conduct. She fled from him in shame, but they were soon after reconciled. Cephalus went constantly to the chase; and Procris growing suspicious, as she had failed herself, fancied that he was attracted by the charms of some other fair one. She questioned the slave who used to accompany him; and he told her that his master used frequently to ascend the summit of a hill and cry out, "Come, Nephele, come!" Procris went to the designated hill and concealed herself in a thicket; and on her husband's crying, “Come, Nephele, come!” (which was nothing more than an invocation for some cloud, Wephele, to interpose itself between him and the scorching beams of the sun), she rushed forward towards her husband, who, in his astonishment, threw his dart and unwittingly killed her. This legend is told with great variations. Cephalus, for his involuntary crime, was banished. He went to Thebes, which was at that time ravaged by a fox which nothing could overtake, and he joined Amphitryon in the chase of it. His dog Laelaps ran it down; but, just as he was catching it, Zeus turned them both to stone. Cephalus then aided Amphitryon against the Teleboans, and on their conquest he settled in the island named from him Cephallenia.
