Greek - Second wife of Cycnus. Tenes was the son of Cycnus by his first wife, Procleia. When he rejected his step-mother's advances, she told Cycnus lies about his son that caused him to abandon both Tenes and his sister Hemithea in a chest cast into the ocean. When Cycnus discovered that Phylonome had deceived him, he killed her. In some lore, occasionally referred to as Phylonome, Philonome or Philonome.
