The nymphs of the River god Achelous in Greek Mythology, they were playmates of Proserpine (Persephone), who was abducted by Pluto (Dis), Lord of the Dead, to become his wife. Because they did not intervene when Proserpine was abducted, her mother, Ceres (Demeter), transformed them into birds with the faces of women. They lived on an island, luring hapless sailors with song, to their death on the rocks surrounding their island.
