"Maidens" are called the three daughters of Scamander 2 and Acidusa, who are honoured in Boeotia up to this day
Scamander 2 was king in Boeotia. He named the Inachus river after himself, and the stream near by he called Glaucia from his mother. The spring Acidusa he named after his wife. Scamander 2 was son of Deimachus 4, a companion of Heracles 1 who took part in the latter's expedition against Troy and fell fighting there. Deimachus 4 was son of Eleon, a Boeotian who brought up his grandson Scamander 2.
Scamander 2's mother Glaucia was a Trojan. She fell in love with Deimachus 4 when he was fighting against the Trojans. When he died Glaucia fled for refuge and told Heracles 1 of her love affair with Deimachus 4. Later, when she gave birth to Scamander 2, Heracles 1 delivered both the child and the mother to Eleon in Boeotia. Glaucia was a daughter of the river god Scamander 1 and Idaea 1.
