In Greek mythology, Chromia (/ˈkrmiə/; Ancient Greek: Χρωμία, Khrōmía) is the daughter of Itonus, son of Amphictyon, himself son of Deucalion. She was also, in some traditions, the mother of Aetolus, Paeon, Epeius and Eurycyda by Endymion.[1][2]

The poem Endymion, a Tale of Greece, by Henry B. Hirst (1848)[3] is a modern retelling of the legend of Endymion and Chromia.[4]
