MELIA was probably the Naiad Nymph of a fresh-water spring in the peninsular of Malea, Lakedaimonia.
First she was Melia, the eponymous Nymphe of the Lakedaimonian peninsular of Malea (or Maleê), secondly she was the Nymphe of a honey-sweet (meli) fresh-water spring, and thirdly the Nymphe of the mountain-ash tree (melia) from which hunting spears were crafted.
Melia was probably identical to Nais, the Nymphe wife of Seilenos, whose springs watered the Malean towns of Pyrrhikhos and Teuthrone.
