Arethusa Nymph of the Fountain-

Arethusea the Nymph of the Fountain-
Arethusa was one of the many water nymphs who attended Artemis. As one of the Virgin Goddesses
followers, she had no interest in men. So when the river-god Alpheus pursued her, Artemis helped her out by turning her into a fountain. Alpheus, however, would not be denied, and changed himself to flow underground so that he could touch her.
In Greek mythology, Arethusa was a Nymph that was connected with fountain. Also
and not surprising she was a legendary associated with water in Ancient Greek times. As
the story goes that made Arethuse so legendary in the Ancient times- And how Arethusa was
transformed into a Fountain is a fantastic legend. It started with a lovely Nymph called Arethusa
who was a companion of the Goddess Artemis. Arethusea, like the Goddess Artemis and loved nothing
more than to wander freely in the forest, valley and Grottoes, enjoying the beauty of all nature. During her frolicking about in the forest Arethusa noticed a shimmering river during the course of her adventures and all Nymphs did
in the Ancient times of the Gods, Goddesses and Titian's. She decided to take a refreshing bath in the
cool water. Of course you must remember the times Nymphs barley ware anything but loosely silks that were loosely wrapped around them and nothing underneath. So it Arethusa probably just slipped off her silk wrap and dipped into the welcoming water. Yet as the legend goes, as soon as she entered the river,
she noticed she wasn't alone. It happened to be the God Alpheius of the River and he was quite roused by
the sight of Arethusa. And in the legend it is said he fell in love with the Nymph immediately.
But Arethusa the beautiful Nymph wanted nothing to do with the passionate River God Alpheius. She was
just wanting to take a refreshing bath alone in the beauty of nature. You see, the nymph was a maiden of sorts and like Artemis, she preferred to remain chaste. So when the River God Alpheius moved upon
her, Arethusa fled the best ways she could from a God. However since Arethusa was a nymph and the
Arethusa Fountain
River God Alpheius advances were not going to be deterred it wasn't easy for the beauty Arethusa to get away for the River God. I is said in legend of the
Greek mythology that the River God simply assumed the form - Arethusa was a prey for him to hunt at his
choosing. Pretty arrogant I would say in my opinion, but that was the era of the Gods verse the Nymphs and it seems that in those days the nymphs didn't have much of a chance when a God had his eyes on you being a nymph, muses, or even some goddesses.
The Beautiful Arethusa Nymph did find refuge from the peruses of the River God Alpheius and that happened on the Island of Ortygia where she called upon the Goddess Artemis to rescue her. And of course the Goddess Artemis did rescue Arethusa by transforming her into a spring fountain. This is how the Nymph Arethusa became legendary with the fountain and there is even a very large fountain in her name...
I hope you Enjoyed the legend of the Arethusa Nymph
