Graces


The Graces (Charities) were three daughters of Zeus and his third wife Eurynome, another sea nymph. They were Aglaia, Euphrosyne, and Thalia. Like the Horae the Graces were vegetation spirits spreading joy in the world of nature and the hearts of men. They lived on Olympus with the Muses and loved accompanying then in song and dance. Also with the Muses they were companions of Athena and presided with her over feminine tasks. A.G.H.
