An immoral or licentious man
In one of these monuments was the famous Satyr of Praxiteles.
Her beauty attracted Zeus, who, assuming the form of a satyr, took her by force (Apollodorus iii.
Amymone having thrown her spear at a stag, missed it, but hit a satyr asleep in the brake.
The satyr pursued her, and she called for help on Poseidon, who appeared, and for love of her beauty caused a spring to well up, which received her name.
