Hellenic Mythology - Echo and Narcissus by EmanuellaKozas Hellenic Mythology - Echo and Narcissus by EmanuellaKozas
MYTHOLOGY -

EKHO (or Echo) was an Oreiad Nymph (Mountain Nymph) of Mount Kithairon (Cithaeron) in Boiotia. The goddess Hera cursed her with the voice of the echo, to only repeat the last words of what was said before, as punishment for distracting her with chatter. She was loved by the god Pan, and herself became enamoured of the boy Narkissos (Narcissus). When the youth spurned her advances the faded away, leaving only her echoing voice behind. In ancient Greek vase painting Ekho was depicted as a winged nymph with her face shrouded in a veil.
NARKISSOS (or Narcissus) was a young man from the town of Thespiai in Boiotia, a son of the River-God Kephisos and the Fountain-Nymph Liriope. He was celebrated for his beauty, and attracted many admirers but, in his arrogance, spurned them all. The suffering of two, however, brought down upon him a deadly curse. First there was the nymph Ekho--a girl cursed by Hera to repeat only the last words of what was said before. When she was rejected by the boy, Ekho faded away in her despair leaving nothing behind but the haunting voice of her echo.
