Io

???









The daughter of Inachus, king of Argos, and the nymph Melias. Zeus was enamoured of her, but she was hounded by the jealous Hera. Zeus then turned her into a heifer but Hera obtained the heifer from Zeus and set Argus, who had many eyes all over his body, to guard her. Hermes contrived to kill Argus, whereupon Hera sent a gadfly called Oestrus to persecute Io, and force her to long wanderings, in the course of which she received relief only when she entered the sea today bearing the name of Ionian. According to another version of the story, Io survived to reach Egypt where Zeus again saw her, and following a very brief encounter with her had a son by name Epaphos. [Kyriazis, Constantine D. Eternal Greece. Translated by Harry T. Hionides. A Chat Publication. p. 65]
