The ancient Greek Gods and Goddess contain a wealth of stories and legends, wrapped in Myths which typically provide a story with a morale code designed to influence the reader into behaviour as fitting Greek culture of the era.
In this article, we look at Syme and the myths and legends surrounding Syme, Syme relationship to and with other Greek Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
She was either the mythical daughter of Ialysos and Dotis, who was abducted by Claucus, an ancient sea god, who named the apparently uninhabited island of Syme-Symi after her. Ialysus was a daughter of Danaus, who was worshipped on the island of Rhodes, and the city of Ialysos, sometimes called Trianta was named after her, although the ancient Doric city, of that name, lies close by. But when it comes to Dotis things become confusing.
