The Nymphs of the woods, the dryads live in trees and will die when
their tree dies naturally or is destroyed. Some of them are Artemis'
attendants, and some follow Dionysius in his drunken reveries. One
dryad, Syrinx, was chased by the faun like god, Pan, and upon
reaching a lake, called upon the Limniads for help. They changed her
into some reeds, but Pan used these reeds to make the syrinx, more
commonly known as the panpipes, which he continues to play merrily
through the hills.
