AELLO
Also known as AELLOPOS, PODARGE, PODARKE, NIKOTHOE

One of the [HARPIES], her name means 'The Stormy One' and we don't feel inclined to argue.

It's claimed she is the mother of ACHILLES's immortal steeds Balius (Balios) and Xanthus (Xanthos) by ZEPHYRUS, but some sources claim it was really her sister CELAENO.

We have a tiny suspicion that there may be a fourth Harpy floating about. Both AELLO and CELAENO are referred to as 'Podarge' (meaning Swift-Footed) — and Podarge is the one ZEPHYRUS fancied. Is she the fourth Harpy? Will the real Podarge stand up please?

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Aello graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Aello movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Aello statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Aello. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
