The Death of Procris (1540) by Giorgio Ghisi

Cephalus mourning the death of Procris on the right surrounded by Cupid and mourning satyrs and nymphs, the goddess of dawn in her chariot in the background.

Procris was the daughter of the Kingo Athens and Praxithea(Nymph). Cephalus is Procris’ husband. She startled him, and he accidentally killed her with his arrow. Sad.
