Lerna is, however, excepted; for it was here that Amymone 1 (one of the DANAIDS) yielded to Poseidon on condition that she might have water, and the god, being in love with her, revealed to her the springs at Lerna.
Amymone 1, who apparently combined her search with hunting, threw a dart at a deer, hitting a sleeping Satyr, who then attempted to rape her.
Then he asked Amymone 1 what she was doing in the wilderness, and as she replied that her father had sent her to get water, the god bid her to draw the trident from the rock.

 Animal Dances: Significance
The female figure is likely to be Amymone; the male seems to be a bizarre satyr wearing wings and what may be a feathered body-suit.
The date of the original painting is difficult to determine because it only survives in an engraving, but some features, such as the musculature of the winged figure, the restraint of the standing female figure, and the fall of her drapery, point to the third quarter of the fifth century.
A winged Eros is present on twenty of the sixty-five vase-paintings of Amymone; I can find no parallel for a satyr disguised as Eros, but it is what a comic poet might do in a burlesque.

But he rescued Amymone from a chthonic satyr that was about to rape her.
Amymone, the blameless, was eventually reconciled with her father, and given in marriage to Lynceus, with whom she founded a race of kings that led to Danae, the mother of Perseus, founder of Mycenae.
