GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

ARETHUSA

Greek River Spirit

River Nymph

One of the NEREIDS.

She was a nymph pursued by ALPHEOS. By turning into a spring and a river she evaded him for a good thousand years before they agreed to mingle.

This must be the longest lust, rejection, love and courtship scenario ever.
