GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

CALLIOPE

Greek Goddess

Also known as KALLIOPE

Well-spoken Goddess of Poetic Eloquence

The eldest and most distinguished of the MUSES, she has a beautiful voice which inspires brilliance in debate and makes even the wimpiest poetry resound with epic meaning. Why she should give her name to a cheesy fairground organ is beyond us.

The lover of APOLLO, she gave birth to his sons ORPHEUS and LINUS. She also took a shine to heroic ACHILLES, but contented herself with teaching him rowdy drinking songs.
