Thalia, the Muse of Comedy and Pastoral Poetry
Thalia was the Greek Muse of comedy and pastoral poetry. She was the Muse who discovered comedy, geometry, architectural science and agriculture.

Thalia had eyes from which love flowed. She was often depicted young and smiling, wearing an ivy wreath and holding a theatrical mask in her right hand and a staff in her left. Thalia's main attribute was a shepherd's crook.

Some mythologists claim that Thalia was also the Muse of vegetation, because of the origin of her name "thalo", meaning "to flower".
