Arsinoe

Greek - Daughter of Phegeus. Wife of Alcmaeon. When Alcmaeon deceived and abandoned her, Arsinoe's brothers killed him. She blamed her father so he locked her in a chest and sent her off as a slave to Agapenor, king of Nemea or Tegea. In some stories she, rather than Coronis, is the mother of Asclepius by Apollo; in other versions, Arsinoe becomes Alphesiboea. In some lore, occasionally identified as Arsinoe, Alphesiboea or Alphesiboea.
