Euterpe, the Muse of Music
Euterpe, the so-called "Giver of Pleasure", was the Muse of Music.
At classical times, Euterpe became also associated with Lyric Poetry and sometimes with Sports.
Euterpe was mainly depicted laurel-crowned, playing or holding a flute, with musical instruments and texts next to her.
When the Greek river Strymon once lied with Euterpe, Euterpe brought to life a son with the name Rhesus. Rhesus was a hero of Homer' s Iliad, who was killed by Greek hero Diomedes during the Trojan War.
