Did You Know? (36 Down) In Greek mythology Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory and a daughter of the earth goddess Gaia, was the mother of the nine Muses. Zeus was their father. The Muses were called upon by the poets and artists of ancient Greece and Rome. Each one was associated with a particular art: Calliope with epic poetry; Clio with history; Erato, lyric poetry; Euterpe with the flute; Melpomene with tragedy; Polyhymnia, mime; Terpsichore, dance; Thalia with comedy; and Urania, astronomy. The names of Erato and Clio are the two most common of the nine used in easy crossword puzzles, due to the placement of the vowels in the names.
