- Pyrene

Pyrene, "fire" in Greek, daughter of Bebryx, was a maiden loved by Heracles. He raped her, and from that violence bore a snake. She was terrified at what she had given birth to, and fled into the mountains where she was devoured bu wild animals. The mountains are called the Pyrenees today.
