November 29th, 2010 by sabrina

Amatheia (pronounced a-ma-THEE-uh) 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. Amatheia was responsible for nursing young fish. Her name, which means “nourisher,” is also seen as Amathea.
