In the Dionysiaca of Nonnus (early 5th century), Lelantos, or Lelantus (Greek: Λήλαντος) is the Titan father of the nymph Aura ("Breeze"), who was the mother, by Dionysus, of Iacchus, a minor deity connected with the Eleusinian mysteries. Lelantos was married to the Oceanid Periboia, whom Nonnus seems to imply was Aura's mother, although elsewhere, he calls Aura the "daughter of Cybele".
