Description
In Greek mythology, Leucothea ("white goddess") was one of the aspects under which an ancient sea goddess was recognized, in this case as a transformed nymph. In the Odyssey (5.333 ff.) Leucothea makes a dramatic appearance as a gannet who tells the shipwrecked Odysseus to discard his cloak and raft and offers him a veil to wind round himself to save his life and reach land. Homer makes her the transfiguration of Ino (Wikipedia).
