The Creation of the Muses
Zeus, the king of the gods, lied with Mnemosyne for nine consecutive nights in order to create deities who were meant to praise the Olympian Gods' victory over the Titans. Nine months later, Mnemosyne brought nine daughters into existence. The daughters were named Muses and they became the goddesses of the Arts and the Sciences in Ancient Greece.
