(Greek Mortal) AMYMONE

Princess of Argos, the daughter of Danaus and Elephantis.

She fell asleep while on a water finding mission and was in the process of being molested by a Satyr when Poseidon turned up just in the nick of time to save the day.

Well, thats not quite what happened. The horny old sea god actually took up where the satyr left off and the resulting son was called Nauplius who went on to found the city of Nauplia. Still, a spring sprung up from the spot where Poseidon stuck his trident while he got busy so it wasn't a complete disaster.

Amymone was one of the Danaides, the fifty daughters of Danaus who were forced to marry their cousins, the fifty sons of Aigyptos, then killed them on their wedding night. Apparently her name means blameless one but it's hard to believe given her history.
