Storyboard Text

  • Arethusa was a huntress like Artemis. After a long day of hunting, she decided to go for a swim to cool off. She felt something in the deep ends of the water. 
  • Alpheus, god of the river, appeared  because he wanted her. 
  • Why are you running? I am the Alpheus, god of the river. I am in love with you
  • I do not like you!
  • Alpheus chases Arethusa. She runs out of breath and cries out to Artemis for help.
  • Artemis turns Arethusa into a spring of water, and she makes a tunnel under the ocean for Arethusa to appear in Ortygia. However, Arethusa was still not safe.
  • Alpheus turned back into a river and followed her through the tunnel. It is said that his waters are still mingled with hers. If someone threw a cup in Alpheus's water it would reappear in Arethusa's well.
