Arethusa

Artemis favourite nymph, who lived in the woods. The river god Alpheus fell in love with her after seeing her take a bath, and she fled to the island Ortygia, where she was transformed into a fountain. Alpheus then transformed himself to a river, thus uniting with the nymph pouring through the fountain.
