Naiads were female nymphs who presided over the sources of fresh water. Every famous spring in the ancient Greek world had its own Naiad. They were believed to have prophetic powers and the ability to cure the sick who bathed in or drank from the Naiad’s water. This figurine of a kneeling Naiad holds a frog in the palm of her right hand that identifies her freshwater habitat.
