ExtractIphis, in mythology, (1) father of *Eteoclus, one of the *Seven against Thebes, and of *Evadne(2), wife of *Capaneus. (2) A young Cypriot, who loved Anaxarete, a noblewoman of that island. She would have none of him, and he finally hanged himself at her door; she looked, unmoved, from her window, and was turned by Aphrodite into stone. The resulting image was called Aphrodite prospiciens (ἐκκύπτουσα ?).
