Thalassa was the name given by the ancient Aegean people to the spirit of the sea. Ages before the Greek pantheon of gods developed into human-like figures, Thalassa was the essence of the Aegean, her body the sea itself. She survives today as the Greek word for sea and as the root of many more terms, including thalassophile: a lover of the sea.
