Greek mythology, an Oread or Orestiad was a type of nymph that
lived in mountains, valleys, ravines. They differ from each other
according to their dwelling: the Idae were from Mount Ida,
Peliades from Mount Pelia, etc. They were associated with
Artemis, since the goddess, when she went out hunting, preferred
mounts and rocky precipices.
