The history of Naiades
* The Naiades, according to Greek mythology, were nymphs of freshwater and depending on their type, we find them with the names Krinea, Limnades, Potamides and Pigai, both in the Theogony of Hesiod and in the Iliad & Homer’s Odyssey.
According to Homer, they were daughters of Zeus and participated in the Divine Councils on Olympus, since they seem to receive divine honors. They lived in riverside areas and were given divination and healing abilities. They accompanied Dionysus with the Satyrs in his festivities, and the legend states that from their union with people, heroes, sages or great artists were born. *
