Arethusa is a character from Greek mythology, daughter of Nereus and Doris. The god Alpheus, son of the god Oceanus, fell in love with her while spying on her bathing naked. However, Arethusa fled from his attentions, surviving on the island of Ortigia, in Syracuse, where the goddess Artemis turned her into a stream. Zeus, moved by the pain of Alpheus, turned him into a river, allowing him, from the Peloponnese, in Greece, to travel all over the Ionian Sea to join his beloved stream. Even today, the myth lives on, on the island of Ortigia, thanks to the so-called Arethusa Stream, a body of water that flows into the Great Harbour of Syracuse.
