AEGINA

Greek Island Spirit

Nymph of the Island Aegina

The daughter of 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.
