BENTHESIKYME (or Benthesicyme) was a Haliad (sea) Nymph of Aithiopia in North Africa.
Benthesikyme was also a goddess of the waves, as is suggested by her name which means deep-swells, from benthos, sea-depths, and kyma, waves.
Indeed Benthesikyme's "Aithiopia" could encompass this area, the term often being used to describe Africa in a general sense.

 Goddesses and Priestesses Connected to Hera (Cont.)
Pictures of Bendis showed her as a Thermodontine rather than Libyan Amazon however, wearing a short cloak, knee length dress, high boots and Phrygian cap with a spear in her left hand and a cup in her right.
Lemnos may also be the source of her title Benthesikyme 'wave of the deep.' The women of these areas gave her grain offerings, and sacrificed bulls to her in rituals similar to those of Artemis Tauropolos.
Early inhabitants of the island were called Sinties (a Thrakian tribe), and the island itself was known as Sinteis 'the ravener.' Lemnos means 'fiery,' so originally Bendis may have been the maiden aspect of the island's divine trinity.
