The teller and the tale

Something to think about when looking at the tale of the Sun and Leucothoe in Book 4, told by the daughters of Minyas. Is this Sun the same as the magisterial charioteer we met in Book 2? Or does the teller have much to do with the substance and form of the tale? If with every teller, we receive a different "world view," a different version of what's real, what is Ovid saying about what we can reliably say we know?
