Oread (mountain nymph) who lived at Mount Parnassus and by accident caught Zeus with another nymph. When asked by Hera if she had seen him, Echo was too afraid to betray Zeus, and lied, saying she had not. When Hera realized the nymph had lied to her, she cursed Echo by making her capable only to repeat what others said.

Pan loved Echo, but in vain. The nymph fell desperately in love with Narcissus who only loved himself, and her distress made her wither away, leaving only her voice.
