Pelinna, Thessaly, Greece, c. 306 - 197 B.C.
|Thessaly|, |Pelinna,| |Thessaly,| |Greece,| |c.| |306| |-| |197| |B.C.|, Daphne and Manto were the daughters of Teiresias, the blind Theban Prophet. He gave birth to Daphne during seven years when he was a woman and sired Manto after he was a man again. Daphne and Manto were taken captive when Thebes fell during the generation before Troy. Manto was sent to Ionia where she married Rhacius, King of Caria, by whom she had Mopsus - said to be the son of Apollo. Daphne remained a virgin and was sent to Delphi where she became the Sibyl.

There were some Apollonians who claimed it was Manto who was sent to Delphi and she changed her name to Daphne. This contradicts the myths that Daphne spurned Apollo's love, while Mopsus was the son of Apollo and Manto.
