Melissa – Bee, a symbol of wisdom and diligence
Melissa – Bee has an important place in the Greek tradition and in the life of the Greeks. Specifically, it was said that the Nymphs Amalthea and Melissa, daughters of Melissae’s who were King of Crete, fed Jupiter with milk and honey, to grow up faster and to claim his place among Gods.
Also Bees were called the Priests of the Goddess Demetra with a natural symbol of the beehive.
