AELLO

Greek Demonness

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?
