Aba

July 4th, 2010 by sabrina

Aba is one of the Greek Naiades. The Naiades were generally thought to be daughters of an Okeanid mother (the 3000 daughters of Tethys and Okeanos, Goddesses of fresh water sources) and a Potamoi father (the 3000 sons of Tethys and Okeanos, Gods of the rivers). Naiades were particularly responsible for water that came up from the earth, such as springs, fountains, and wells. Aba watched over a spring in Thrace, and after a dalliance with Poseidon, God of the sea, she had a son named Ergiskos, who founded the city of Ergiske near his mother’s spring.
