GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

EPIMELIADS

Greek Tree Spirits

Also known as EPIMELIADES, EPIMELIDES

Guardians of Wool Trees

Woodland Tree NYMPHS.

These are actually MELIADS, the spirits of ash and fruit trees. But, apparently due to a garbled translation from the Greek, some sources list them as Protectors of Sheep. So we’ve sheepishly given them a second entry. Just in case.
