Greek Mythology

Hamadryad, Antoine Coysevox, 1707-1710, Louvre, Paris

Hamadryads (Ἁμαδρυάδες, Αμαδρυάδες) are Greek mythological beings that live in trees. They are a specific species of dryad, which are a particular type of nymph. Hamadryads are born bonded to a specific tree. If their tree died, the hamadryad associated with it died as well. For that reason, dryads and the gods punished any mortals who harmed trees.
