This Dryad has been proposed to by Pan, who was enchanted by her sensuous presence while passing through this wood. In return for her hand she would be transformed into a wood nymph. However, as temping as becoming ambulatory may be, she realized that a union with Pan would forever be enveloped by dispair, as he is fickle, and thus sent back the ring with the mourning dove. Though she chose the less glamourous life, she is nevertheless satisfied having been true to her nature through remaining immobile.
