Description:

In Greek mythology, Calliope was the muse of epic poetry, daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and is now best known as Homer’s muse, the inspiration for The Iliad and The Odyssey. She had two sons, Orpheus and Linus by either Apollo or the Thracian king Oeagrus. She was the oldest and wisest of the Muses, as well as the most assertive. She was the judge in the argument over Adonis between Aphrodite and Persephone, giving each equal time with him. She was represented by a stylus and wax tablets. She is always seen with a writing tablet in her hand, and sometimes carries a roll of paper or a book or wears a gold crown.
