Abarbaree (pronounced a-ber-BAR-ee-ee) 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. Abarbaree watched over the River Aisepos in Anatolia. With the Trojan Prince Boukolion, she bore two sons, Aisepos and Pedasos. Abarbaree’s name, which means “non-barbaric,” is also seen as Abarbarea.
