Childhood of Zeus. The baby Zeus was cared for by the nymphs Adrasteia and Ida, daughters of Melisseus, King of Crete. He was fed with milk from the goat Amaltheia, a wondrous animal of terrible appearance. In gratitude Zeus placed her among the constellations and from her hide, which no arrow could pierce, he made the aegis. To the nymphs he gave one of her horns, conferring on it the property of refilling itself with whatever food or drink was required. This was the horn of plenty or cornucopia.
