A Cretan priest who, due to services to Cybele above and beyond the call of duty (including frenzied dancing and self-mutilation), was made a River God.
The river chosen was the one he fell into and drowned after an over-enthusiastic demonstration. This was the Xanthus and is now the Scamander.
It’s nowadays used to dip sheep, bathe virgins and dispose of empty bottles.
