In Greek mythology, Thespia (Ancient Greek: Θέσπια) was the daughter of the river-god, Asopus and Metope, daughter of Ladon, also a river-god. Thespiae (the city west of Thebes) was named after her.[1]


They say that Thespia was a daughter of Asopus, who gave her name to the city, while others say that Thespius, who was descended from Erechtheus, came from Athens and was the man after whom the city was called.[1]
