Unsolved:Nemea (mythology)

From HandWiki

In Greek mythology, Nemea (/ˈnmiə/; Ancient Greek: Νεμέα or Νεμέαν means 'wooded district') was the eponymous nymph of Nemea, a district between Cleonae and Phlius in Argolis.[1]

Family

Nemea was one of the naiad daughters of the river-god Asopus[2] and possibly Metope, the river-nymph daughter of the river Ladon.[3] She was the sister of Salamis,[4] Aegina,[5] Corcyra, Thebe,[6] Antiope,[7] Cleone,[8] Harpina,[9] Plataea[10] (Oeroe[11]), and Tanagra.[12]

In some account, Nemea's parentage is attributed to Zeus and Selene.[13][14]
