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.
