(Greek Spirit) ACANTHA

The prickly nymph of the Acanthus.

Acantha caught Apollo's eye as she was milking goats and collecting honey, but wasn't at all moved by his amorous advances.

When the lust-struck God wouldn't take no for an answer she almost caught his eye again... as she scratched at his face with her fingernails, so he turned her into the the first thorny Acanthus bush.

Nymphs don't usually associate themselves with lowly bushes or shrubs, preferring the protection and stability of a full-on tree.
