This illustration of Terpsichore dates to 1898. It shows the statue in Florence. Terpsichore was the goddess of the dance and chorus. In Greek and Roman mythology, the Muses were nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne (goddess of memory). There were honored as the patrons of arts and sciences. Calliope was the head muse, and Apollo, the god of prophecy and song, was their leader.
