    Napaeae in Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology [NYMPHAE.] - A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology, William Smith, Ed.

    Napaeae in Wikipedia In Greek mythology, the Napaeae (Ancient Greek: ναπαῖαι, from νάπη; English translation: "a wooded dell") were a type of nymph that lived in wooded valleys, glens or grottoes.[1] Statius invoked them in his Thebaid, when the naiad Ismenis addresses her mortal son Krenaios: "I was held a greater goddess and the queen of Nymphae. Where alas! is that late crowd of courtiers round thy motherís halls, where are the Napaeae that prayed to serve thee?" [2] - Wikipedia
