A chthonic female monster in Greek mythology, Campe or Kampe ("crooked") was set by Cronus to guard the Hecatonchires and Cyclopes in Tartarus after Cronus imprisoned them there; she was killed by Zeus when he rescued the Cyclopes for help in the Titanomachy (Bibliotheke 1.2.1). Campe was a she-dragon with a woman's head and torso and a scorpion-like tail. Nonnus, in Dionysiaca (18.237) gives the most elaborated description of her.
