Greek Mythology

In Greek mythology, Cepheus (/ˈsiːfiəs, -fjuːs/; Greek: Κηφεύς Kepheús) is the name of two rulers of Aethiopia, grandfather and grandson.

Cepheus is prominently featured in the Perseus legend as the husband of Cassiopeia and father of Princess Andromeda, and whose brother Phineus expected to marry Andromeda. Various sources described his kingdom to be "Aethiopia" or the city of Joppa (Jaffa) in Phoenicia whom was named after the elder Cepheus' wife, Iope, daughter of Aeolus.
