In Greek mythology, Philyra was an Oceanid, a daughter of Oceanus and Tethys. Chiron was her son by Cronus. When she gave birth to her son, she was so disgusted by how he looked that she abandoned him at birth. She was the goddess of perfume, writing, healing, beauty and paper. She also taught humanity to make paper.
Another Philyra was married to Nauplius and had many children including Palamedes. She was also known as Klymene or Hesione.
