Greek - A child who became a serpent. When the Arcadians attacked Elis, a woman appeared who gave her new baby to the Eleans as she had been instructed to do in a dream. When the child was placed in front of the Elean troops, it turned into a fearsome snake, the sight of which routed the Arcadians. The snake then disappeared into the earth. In some lore, occasionally called Sosipolis.
