Lelantos's daughter is the nymph Aura (Breeze). Nonnus says that her mother, or at least his wife, is the Oceanid Periboia. But elsewhere, he calls Aura the "daughter of Cybele"

Cybele is a Phrygian goddess from Asia Minor (Anatolia) that got integrated into Greek Mythology. Could Nonnus have meant Aura was born in the land where Cybele was from?
