The Thriae // (Ancient Greek: θριαί Thriaí) were nymphs, three virginal sisters, one of a number of such triads (called "maiden trinities" by Jane Ellen Harrison) in Greek mythology. They were named Melaina ("The Black"), Kleodora ("Famed for her Gift"), and Daphnis ("Laurel") or Corycia. They were the three Naiads (nymphs) of the sacred springs of the Corycian Cave of Mount Parnassus in Phocis.
