ADRASTEIA (pronounced ad-ras-TIE-uh) is one of the Greek Nymphs. She and her sister Ide were the daughters of Amaltheia, another Nymph, and King Melisseus of Crete. They lived on Mount Ida, and it was to them that the Goddess Rhea came with her baby son Zeus to hide him from his father, Kronos. Adrasteia and Ide hid the baby in a cave and cared for him for a year, feeding him goat's milk and honey. After he had gained his full power, Zeus immortalized his two nurses by placing them in the sky as Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Adrasteia was renamed as KYNOSOURA, and became Ursa Minor. Her name, which means "not escaping," is also seen as ADRASTEA.
