Byblis

Byblis fell in love with her brother and was prepared to do anything to get him. She wrote him a long letter, where she declared her love, and gave examples of couples amongst the gods that were brothers and sisters as well.

Caunus was disgusted and left Crete to get away from his love sick sister. Byblis followed him, though, and stalked him through Caria and Lycia and many other countries.

When she arrived in Phoenicia her tears had dissolved her, and she turned into a spring. The city where the spring was was named Byblis.
