Sea nymphs (female spirits of sea waters), the 50 daughters of Nereus and Doris, sisters to their brother Nerites.
They often accompany Poseidon, the god of the sea, and can be friendly and helpful to sailors (such as the Argonauts in their search for the Golden Fleece).
Nereids are particularly associated with the Aegean Sea, where they dwelt with their father Nereus in the depths within a golden palace.
The most notable of them are Thetis, wife of Peleus and mother of Achilles; Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon and mother of Triton; and Galatea, the vain love interest of the Cyclops Polyphemus.
They symbolized everything that is beautiful and kind about the sea.
Their melodious voices sang as they danced around their father.
They are represented as very beautiful girls, crowned with branches of red coral and dressed in white silk robes trimmed with gold, but who went barefoot.
They were part of Poseidon’s entourage and carried his trident.
