Ninpha Avernalia Picture

Ninpha avernalia

The NYMPHAI (or Nymphs) were female spirits of the natural world, minor goddesses of the forests, rivers, springs, meadows, mountains and seas. Among them there was also a class of underworld nymphs called Lampades or ninphae avernalias in Latin (meaning Hell’s nymph). They were torch-bearing nymphs of the underworld, companions of the goddess Hekate (a moon goddess of Death, Night and Magic) in her night-time revels and hauntings. Very few is known about them I personally think that their duty was to escort the souls of the dead to the final resting place, the souls were following the light of the torch-bearing nymphs instead of wandering in the darkness. Spotting a Ninfa Avernalia was considered bad luck and following her suicidal, probably because in the end she will escort you in the underworld.
