Antheia was one of the Charites, or Graces, of Greek mythology and "was the goddess of flowers and flowery wreaths worn at festivals and parties." Her name is derived from the Ancient Greek word anthos, meaning flower, and she was depicted on vases as an attendant of Aphrodite with other Charites. She was known to the Romans as Anthea. Her center of worship was on the island of Crete.
Antheia is also the Greek name of Ancient Sozopolis in modern Bulgaria, and another Antheia was a village which was later adopted into Patras around 1000 B.C.
Antheia was the Goddess of Vegetation, Lowlands, Marshlands, Gardens, Blossoms, the Budding Earth, and Human Love.
