“May Galateia be not unfriendly to your voyage” -
From the Greek,
Galateia was one of the Nereides, fifty Haliad Nymphs or goddesses of the sea.
They were the patrons of sailors and fishermen, who came to the aid of men in
distress, and goddesses who had in their care the sea's rich bounty.
Individually they also represented various facets of the sea, from salty brine,
to foam, sand, rocky shores, waves and currents, in addition to the various
skills possessed by seamen. Her name means "Goddess
of Calm Seas" She was depicted in ancient art as a beautiful woman riding
side-saddle on the back of a sea monster or fish-tailed god, quite often a Dolphin.
