[sc. An epithet of] Demeter; for Rharos had a son Keleos, and Keleos [had a son] Triptolemos. Rharos received Demeter, as she wandered about looking for Kore, into his house. In gratitude, Demeter taught Triptolemos, the grandson of Rharos, the farming of grain. And she provided him a chariot of winged serpents, traveling in which Triptolemos went all about the earth, teaching the farming of grain.

Stephanus of Byzantium s.v. Rarion: 'a plain in Eleusis. Also [referred to as] Rarian land. And Demeter [is called] Rarias.' See also, in brief, Photius rho44 Theodoridis.
In the Homeric Hymn to Demeter (translation by Gregory Nagy at web address 1), the sorrowful goddess visits the home of Keleos himself (97), but the Hymn also mentions the cult-place known as the "Rharian field" (450).
