List of Gods   : "Amaltheia"

NameOriginDescription
Goddess name "Amaltheia" Crete The nurse of the infant Zeus after his birth in Crete. The ancients themselves appear to have been as uncertain about the etymology of the name as about the real nature of Amaltheia. Hesychius derives it from the verb to nourish or to enrich, others from firm or hard; and others again from to signify the Divine goat, or the tender goddess. The common derivation is from to milk or suck.
