HYADES

Greek Rain Spirits

Rainy day nymphs

These are water NYMPHS specializing in rain. No-one knows quite how many there are — have you ever tried counting raindrops?

They are mostly daughters of ATLAS, but a few extra ones may have dropped in from elsewhere. The next time it rains we will try to discover more.
