ALKINOE (pronounced AL-kih-no-ee) is one of the Greek Naiades. The Naiades were generally thought to be daughters of an Okeanid mother (the 3000 daughters of Tethys and Okeanos, Goddesses of fresh water sources) and a Potamoi father (the 3000 sons of Tethys and Okeanos, Gods of the rivers). Naiades were particularly responsible for water that came up from the earth, such as springs, fountains, and wells. Alkinoe's spring was on Mount Lykaios in Arkadia; she and eight other nymphs helped Rhea in her labor with Zeus and nursed him as an infant. Alkinoe's name, which means "strong mind," is also seen as ALCINOE.
