Nereids

???










Sea-maidens, they were the daughters of Nereus and Doris, the Oceanide. The Iliad records thirty-four of them, Hesiod fifty, and Apollodorus the Athenian, forty-five. They dwelt in the depths of the sea and entertained their kindly father with song and dance. They often summoned the Tritons and played with the waves. Of these, Amphitrite married Poseidon, and Thetis was wed to Peleus to escape the desire of Zeus and of Poseidon. Another well known Nereid was Galateia with whom the Cyclops Polyphemus fell in love. [p. 51]
