PLEIADES
Also known as ATLANTIDES

More daughters of [ATLAS] who sought stardom after nearly having their careers ruined by [ORION].

They all had casting couch affairs with leading directors of the day except one, Merore, who was propositioned by SISYPHUS, a pushy mortal so she doesn't get to shine so brightly as the others.

MAIA, TAYGETE and ELECTRA were chosen by ZEUS giving a three-star rating. ALCYONE and CELAENO(2) got POSEIDON and a two-star rating. STEROPE got ARES, so we only give her one star.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Pleiades graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Pleiades 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 Pleiades statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Pleiades. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
