      Alcyone in Greek mythology is the name of one of the Pleiades, daughters of Atlas and Pleione or, more rarely, Aethra.[1] She attracted the attention of the god Poseidon and bore him several children, variously named in the sources: Hyrieus, Lycus, Hyperenor, and Aethusa;[2] Hyperes and Anthas;[3] Glaucus;[4] and Epopeus.[5][6] There are various etymological interpretations of her name's origin.[7]
