What does BATEA mean?
- In Greek mythology, the name Batea refers to the following individuals: ⁕The daughter or the aunt of King Teucer. Her father was the ruler of a tribe known as the Teucrians. The Teucrians inhabited the area of northwest Asia Minor later called the Troad, and the term is sometimes used as another name for the Trojans. Batea married King Dardanus, son of Zeus and Electra, whom Teucer named as his heir. Batea gave her name to a hill in the Troad, mentioned in the Iliad, as well as to the town of Bateia. By Dardanus, Batea was the mother of Ilus, Erichthonius, Zacynthus, and Idaea. Greek mythology also recounts Arisbe of Crete, a daughter of Teucer, as the wife of Dardanus, so Arisbe and Batea are usually assumed to be the same person. ⁕A Naiad, who married King Oebalus of Sparta. Their sons were Hippocoon, Tyndareus and Icarius.
