Calliope was the first and most respectable of all Muses. She was the Muse of Epic Poetry and Eloquence. Her symbols were the abacus and the pen. More often than not she was also pictured with a tablet or a scroll. She is represented as a stately young woman, whose brow is crowned with gold. Clio was the Muse of History. She inspired those who spoke, wrote and sang history. Her symbols were the trumpet, the clepsydra (hour-glass) and most of all the manuscript that unfolds. Erato also carried a Lyre and she was a deity of a different kind of poetry. She was the Muse of marriage and Love lyrics. She was a fine, merry girl crowned with roses. In the beginning Euterpe was just an escort to Dionysus. However she later became the Muse of Lyric Poetry. Her symbol was the flute and she was pictured playing it, as all Muses were pictured along with their symbols. Melpomene was the Muse of Tragedy. It is said that she was involved with Dionysus who was sometimes called Melpomenus. Her symbols were the tragic mask and club of Heracles. She often pictured wearing a garland of grapevine leaves, like Dionysus and she carried a sword. Another possibility was that her grave attitude led to her being the Muse of Tragedy. At first it was said that Polymnia inspired hymns and songs for the Gods and the heroes. Later people said she was a deity of knowledge and memory and finally the Muse of "small art". She was presented in a thoughtful mood and sometimes talking with her fingers as though people could express their will with gestures, without speech. Terpsihore was a young and lively fair maiden who prevailed in dances and drama at the beginning. Finally she became the Muse of Dancing and she is often represented in a dancing position with the Lyre and Plectrum (a kind of musical triangle). At the beginning Thalia was an agricultural deity and was the Muse of Pastoral Poetry. She supervised outdoor feasts. She had a bright and playful look so it is not surprising that she finally became the Muse of Comedy. The comic mask she carried with her left hand and the shepherd crook she held with her right, were her symbols. She was crowned with grapevine or ivy leaves. Urania is the Muse of Astronomy. A pair of compasses and a celestial globe were her symbols and with those she wanted to define the position of the stars upon the globe.
