Chrysopeleia, a hamadryad who was one day in great danger, as the oak-tree which she inhabited was undermined by a mountain torrent. Arcas, who was hunting in the neighbourhood, discovered her situation, led the torrent in another direction, and secured the tree by a dam. Chrysopeleia became by Arcas the mother of Elatus and Apheidas. (Apollod. iii. 9. ┬ž 1; Tzetz. ad Lycoph. 480.)
