In Nonnus Dionysiaca, Aura was Greek goddess of breezes and cool air, daughter of Lelantos and Periboia.
She was a virgin huntress, just like Artemis and proud of her maidenhood.
One day, she claimed that the body of Artemis was too womanly and she doubted her virginity.
Artemis asked Nemesis for help to avenge her dignity and caused the rape of Aura by Dionysus.
Aura became a mad and dangerous killer.
When she bore twin sons, she ate one of them while the other one, Iakhos, was saved by Artemis.
Iakhos later became an attendant of Demeter and the leader of Eleusinian Mysteries.
