“The Naiades were fresh-water nymphai who inhabited the rivers, lakes, brooks and springs of their Rivers-God fathers' catchments. They were not quite immortal but still joined the assemblies of the gods on Olympus.

Many of the Naiades married local kings and they play a prominent role in the genealogies of the various royal families. Others, such as the beautiful Naias daughters of Asopos, were loved by the gods. Following these unions many of these Nymphai had towns, cities and islands named after them by their sons.
