BRIZO, an ancient goddess worshipped in Delos. She delivered oracles in dreams to those who consulted her about fishery and seafaring. The women of Delos offered her presents consisting of little boats filled with all kinds of eatables (with the exception of fish) in order to obtain her protection for those engaged on the sea (Athenaeus viii. p. 335).
