In Greek mythology, Hyrmine (/hərˈmaɪni/;[1] Ancient Greek: Ὑρμίνη Hyrmínē [hyːrmínɛː]) or Hyrmina was the daughter of Neleus, Nycteus, or, according to others, of Epeius and Anaxiroe, and the sister of Alector (though others assert she was an only child). She was married to Phorbas and became the mother of the Argonauts Augeas,[2] Actor,[3] Tiphys[4] and a daughter, Diogeneia.[5] The natural father of Augeas by her may have been Helios.[6][7] Otherwise, Helios and Nausidame[8] or Eleios[9] or Poseidon[2] were called the parents of Augeas.
