Euterpe is one of the nine Muses, the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne. Mt. Parnassus is sacred to them. Euterpe is the muse of lyric poetry and flute playing. Her name means "she who makes herself loved." Erato is often portrayed as having flowers in her hair. Because of her love of the more wild melodies, she was more often associated with Dionysus than with Apollo.
