From Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology (London, 1880)

ABARBA'REA ('Abarbaree'), a Naiad, who bore two sons, Aesepus and Pedasus, to Bucolion, the eldest but illegitimate son of the Trojan King Laomedon. (Hom. Il. vi. 22, &c.) Other writers do not mention this nymph, but Hesychius (s.v.) mentions 'Abarbareai or 'Abarbalaiai as the name of a class of nymphs.

An original e-text for everything2. That is, I sat down and copied the text from the book (in the public domain) - it is not available on any other web site. Given sufficient interest, I may node more entries from this book, and try to get my ocr software to recognize the printing.
