Aia (pronounce EYE-uh) 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. Aia’s spring was in the town of Kholkis on the Black Sea. She was once pursued by Phasis, a local river God. Aia’s name is also seen as Aea.
