KLEIO (pronounced CLY-oh) is the Greek Muse of history. The nine Muses are the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and they accompany Apollo in his role as God of the arts. Kleio is said to have brought the Phoenician alphabet to Greece. By Pieros, the King of Macedonia, she is the mother of Hyakinthos, a young man who was accidentally killed by Apollo who then turned his blood into a flower--the hyacinth. Kleio is usually depicted with a scroll in her hands, or sitting next to a pile of books. Her name means "she who makes famous" and is also seen as CLIO. Epithets for her include DAUGHTER OF THE LORD OF CLOUD-CAPPED HEAVEN, GIVER OF SWEETNESS, HIGH-THRONED, QUEEN OF SONG, FLOWERING, and UNFORGETTING.
