Travel Guide Aegina Island Saronic Greece
According to mythology, Vritomartis was born of Zeus and Karmi and because she liked hunting the goddess, Artemis, was fond of her.
Minoas fell in love with Virtomartis and in trying to get away from him she fell into the sea where she got tangled up in some fishermen's nets and they took her with them on their ship.
But on the ship, a sailor fell in love with Vritomartis so she was forced to throw herself into the sea again in order to get away from him and she managed to swim to the island.
The girl headed towards the forest on the island and the sailors, watching from the ship, saw her vanish as if by some holy intervention and that's why they named her Aphaia, from the word 'afandos' which in Greek means that someone has vanished into thin air.
