Dryaden, die Baumgeister der griechischen Mythologie

Word of the #FolkloreThursday: “naiad” — a spirit that haunts streams, springs, rivers & wild freshwater, as––in Greek myth––an “oread” is a spirit of the mountains, a “dryad” a spirit of trees & woods, and a “nereid” a spirit of saltwater, seas & oceans. pic.twitter.com/c4UorNbN98 — Robert Macfarlane (@RobGMacfarlane) February 21, 2019
