ADAMANTHEA

Greek Protection Spirit

Child-hiding Nymph

One of the NYMPHS, she nursed and hid the infant ZEUS from his child-devouring father CRONUS.

As Lord of the sky, the earth and the sea, CRONUS could detect anything sneaky that went on in these realms.

But cunning ADAMANTHEA hooked ZEUS’s cradle to a tree and, because he was dangling in the space between earth and sky, CRONUS was none the wiser.
