Setting in Cephalus and Procris

The whole story of Cephalus and Procris is about hunting, so it's no surprise that most of the goings-on happen in the woods and hills, where Cephalus likes to do his hunting. Nothing sneaky happening hereā€”just an appropriate setting for the story.

We can't forget Eos's pad, though. Though the story doesn't go into a lot detail about it, some sources tell us that she lives at the edge of the world on the shores of Oceanus. Pretty stark contrast from the woods, right?
