AEGINA

Nymph-like daughter of River God [ASOPUS].

ZEUS took a fancy to her and spirited her off. The poor girl found herself stuck in the middle of nowhere with a newborn son and the usual absent father syndrome.

But ZEUS never forgot her and was very helpful when her son, AEACUS, became the King of Attica.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Aegina graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Aegina movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Aegina statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Aegina. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
