The Greeks erected a colossus of Rhodes, was one of the eldest Oceanids, a daughter of Tethys and Oceanus. She was remembered by four names: Halia, Aphrodite, Amphitrite, and Kapheira. She is the goddess of salt water.
The Statue on podium was placed where nowadays Kalabagh city is situated. It was destroyed by invaders, Saka Tribes, Aver Huns (real fathers of A'oona) and Parthians. Kapheira, was thought to be daughter of Poseidon, whose worshipers usually paint their body with colours and Mehandi, and danced before the goddess and exposed their painted parts of bodies for receiving blessing from Sacredos (Chief Priest). Furthermore, the groin of the goddess was glabrous, and wore a white silk gown. Her statue was almost nude. It would be more proper to quote the proper references where you have find these stories She was selected by the Sacredos and tattooed in three spots in triangular shape: The Earth, The Sun and The Paluto. And her first child was nominated as poluticus. From that time we are still calling our first child "Plothee ka Bachha." incorrect to make this connection the proper sentence is "Pehloti ka bachha". Pehl, pehla mean first and sinilarly pehlay mean past. this sentence have no connection with PalutoThere is a famous incidence, record in Greek journals.

She was denounced criminal because she had had sex with local uncouth people, therefore, she lost virginity. She was punished and locked up in a house situated in the east of Kalabagh. Leucothea was real Maera. It can be said that existing village Mari might be abode of Maera (Leucotha)[Leucotha and Leucothea...are they different or it is your sheer carelessness? Pakistani 'schoolars' must be banned on this site] who was cursed and killed thereafter. Marri mean home in local language.
