Who is Nepheli in greek mythology?
In Greek mythology, Nepheli was a cloud nymph who figured prominently in the story of Phrixus and Helle. Nephele was also the goddess of hospitality.
Frixos and Elli
Nepheli was married to King Athamanta, who later was married to Ino. His children from the first marriage, Frixos and Elli, were scorned by Ino, who wanted to see her own sons on the throne, Klearhos and Melikerti. Through intrigues and irreal oracles, Frixos was commanded to be sacrificed, but the last moment Nepheli sent a wingy gold ram, which saved her two children and took them away flying over the sea.
Ellispontos, the sea of Elli
Elli fell in the Ellispontos sea, while Frixos got to Kolhida, where he gifted the Golden Fleece to King Eiti and got married to his daughter, Halkiopi.
