Triteia

fresh water nymph of the local spring of the town Triteia

Triteia was, in Greek mythology, a Haliad nymph, the daughter of the sea god Triton and mother of Melanippus. Ares mated with Triteia, a priestess to Athena, and by whom Ares became the father of Melanippus.

When he grew up, he founded the city Triteia, naming it after his mother. The people of Triteia are accustomed to sacrifice both to Ares and to Triteia.
