Greek - A nymph of Mount Ida. A prophetess. Daughter of Cebren. Mother of Corythus by Paris. She married Paris before he became aware of his royal parentage but he abandoned her in favour of Helen. When Paris was wounded at the battle of Troy, his attendants took him to Oenone in the belief that she knew a magic drug which would save him. She took her revenge by letting him die but then, overcome by grief, hanged herself or threw herself on his funeral pyre and died with him. Sometimes identified as Oenone, Oinone or Oinone.
