Clio, the Muse of  History and Epic Poetry
Muse Clio (Cleio) was the goddess of epic poetry and history and is also considered the inventor of the guitar.

Clio once fell madly in love with Pierus, king of Macedonia, and with him created the beautiful Hyacinth, lover of the Greek god Apollo.


Clio is often depicted dressed in purple with laurels in her hair, holding a cornet in one hand and a book in the other, the book with which Cleio wrote the story. At her feet lay the box of history.
