Greek Poetry Goddess

Also known as Kleio

An epic Goddess of Historical Poetry

One of the Muses, Clio deals with historical saga and poetry. So she’s probably the Muse that Homer turned to for inspiration when he could only think of corny one-liners during Iliad fight scenes.

As well as stirring the creative juices, Clio also introduced the Phoenician alphabet to Greece and did great things for the parchment industry.
