“Melias” is one of the “Meliae” or “Meliad” nymphs. Their name originates from “Μελία”, the ancient Greek word for ash-tree. In an ancient myth recorded by Hesiod's Theogony, Cronus envied the power of his father, the ruler of the universe, Uranus. Uranus drew the enmity of Cronus's mother, Gaia, when he hid the youngest children of Gaia in Tartarus, so that they would not oppose him, or ever see the light again. Gaia created a great stone sickle, and gathered together Cronus and his brothers, to persuade them to castrate Uranus, in vengeance of his acts.   Only Cronus was willing to do the deed, so Gaia gave him the sickle and placed him in ambush. When Uranus met with Gaia, Cronus attacked him with the sickle, castrating him and casting his testicles into the sea. From the blood that spilled out from Uranus and fell upon the earth, Gaia was impregnated, and thus the Meliae were born. In Hesiod's Works and Days, the ash trees, perhaps meaning the Melian nymphs, are said to have been the progenitors of the generation of men belonging to Hesiod's Bronze Age. They were wed by the men of the Silver Age--in the time before the first woman was created--and from them mankind was descended. The Meliae were also the nurses of the then-hidden-from-Cronus infant Zeus, in the Cretan Dikti mountains, where they fed him on the milk of the well-known goat Amalthea, along with honey.
