In Greek mythology, Eudora or Eudore (Ancient Greek: Εὐδώρη "early" or "leading") was a name given to three nymphs. According to Hesiod, and the mythographer Apollodorus, Eudora was the name of one of the fifty Nereids, the daughters of the sea-gods Nereus and his wife Doris. Hesiod, also gives Eudora as one of the names of the 3000 Oceanids, the daughters of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. While according to Hyginus, Eudora was the name of one of the Hyades, the nymphs associated with the configuration of stars known as the Hyades. In a Hesiodic fragment, "long-robed Eudora", was also listed as one of the Hyades.
