Balanis is one of the eight Hamadryades (female spirits of nature in Greek mythology, daughters of the forest spirits Oxylos ("Of the Forest") and Hamadryas ("With the Tree")). Each one is born within a certain tree over which she watches and in witch she lives. Balanis is the nymph of acorn-bearing trees such as the holm and oak. She can often be found in the trees down by the river-side and in the sacred groves.
