AMATHEIA (pronounced a-ma-THEE-uh) is one of the Greek Nereides. The Nereides were the 50 daughters of Nereus, God of the sea, and Doris, one of the Okeanides. Nereides were responsible for the sea, fish, and sailors. Each had dominion over some attribute of the sea, such as the way that foam formed upon the waves or the swiftness of a current. Amatheia was responsible for nursing young fish. Her name, which means "nourisher," is also seen as AMATHEA.

In fall Freyja left us
Traveling southward.
Now she returns again,
Bringing soft words.
Out of her golden hair
Spring flowers fall
Tumbling like melodies,
Sounding the call.
Chaste through the winter
Women now pine,
Wanting their lovers home
Sharing the wine.

(A Scandinavian song to the Goddess)
