 Dione - WiccanWeb.ca   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Dione in Greek Mythology is an Oceanid goddess who has her most concrete form in Book V of Homer's Iliad as the mother of Aphrodite: Aphrodite journeys to Dione's side after she has been wounded in battle while protecting her favorite son Aeneas.
Although Dione is not a Titan in Hesiod, but appears instead in his Theogony among the long list of Oceanids, Apollodorus includes her among the Titans (1.1.3 and 1.3.1).
The archaic king Tantalus in Lydia had Dione as a consort: the Roman mythographer, Gaius Julius Hyginus, (Fabulae 82, 83) says that Dione is a daughter of Atlas and the mother, by Tantalus, of Pelops, Niobe and Broteas.

 Mythography | Oceanids in Myth and Art
In Greek mythology, the Oceanids were beautiful sea-nymphs.
According to the Greek poet Hesiod, these nymphs were the daughters of the Titans Okeanos and Tethys (in case you are wondering, the word Oceanid is derived from the name Okeanos - which is also spelled Oceanus).
Hesiod lists the names of many of the Oceanids in his Theogony, which is a poem that describes the birth of the Greek gods and goddesses.

However, Hesiod's classification of Peitho as an Oceanid is contradicted by other sources.

 Mythography | The Greek Goddess Peitho in Myth and Art
In contrast to her clearly defined position in mythology and religion, Peitho's ancestry remains somewhat confusing.
According to one of our best ancient sources (the Theogony of Hesiod), Peitho was the daughter of the Titans Tethys and Okeanos, which would make her an Oceanid and therefore sister of such notable goddesses as Tyche, Doris, Metis, and Calypso.
However, it is worth mentioning that Hesiod's classification of Peitho as an Oceanid is contradicted by other sources.

He traversed the heavens and flew over the earth, but being an incompetent driver, he set them afire.
Some say that Phaethon 3 is the son of Helius (Sun) and the Oceanid Clymene 1; but others affirm that his parents were Clymenus 5 and the Oceanid Merope 4, and that Clymenus 5 was the grandfather of Phaethon 3, being himself the son of Helius.
It is told that Phaethon 3 and Epaphus 1—son of Io and future king of Egypt—were companions and had the same age, and that it was a discussion between them that made Phaethon 3 investigate the question of his father.
