Eidyia

In Greek mythology, Eidyia  (or Idyia) was described as an Oceanides nymph, the daughter of  Oceanus and Tethys. Eidyia was described as the youngest Oceanides. 
Eidyia

                Her name Eidyia means- "to see" or "know."  So in some versions, Eidyia was described as the goddess of knowledge or as the personification of the magical power of the eye, which in Greek superstition was the source of the witch's supernatural power. 
                                            Eidyia got married to Aeetea, king of Colchis and became the mother of Medea, Chalciope and Absyrtus.
