Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Eurynome was a deity of ancient Greek religion worshipped at a sanctuary near the confluence of rivers called the Neda and the Lymax in classical Peloponnesus. She was represented by a statue of what we would call a mermaid. Tradition, as reported by the Greek traveller, Pausanias, identified her with the Oceanid, or "daughter of Ocean," of Greek poetry. The name is usually segmented Eury-nome, where eury- is "wide." This segment appears in Linear B as e-u-ru-, a prefix in a few men's names. It does not occur in any Mycenaean women's names, nor does -nome.show more
