October 5th, 2010 by sabrina

Aktaie (pronounced ack-TIE-eh) is one of the Greek Nereides. The Nereides were the 50 daughters of Nereus, God of the sea, and Doris, one of the Okeanides. Nereides were responsible for the sea, fish, and sailors. Each had dominion over some attribute of the sea, such as the way that foam formed upon the waves or the swiftness of a current. Aktaie was responsible for the seashore. Her name, which means “headland,” is also seen as Aktaia or Actaea.
