JUNIOR SUITE MELPOMENE

Melpomene was a muse of Greek mythology. She was the muse of tragedy,despite her joyous songs.

According to Hesiod's Theogony and Apollodoros she was the daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, mother of the Sirens by Achelous.

Initially she was considered the muse of Singing,hence its name which derives from the Greek verb "melpo" or "melpomai" meaning "to celebrate with dance and song".

Later, however, she became the muse of Tragedy.

Melpomene and the other muses escorted Apollo and worked with Dionysus. She is often portrayed by Dionysus with a tragic mask and wearing "cothurnus", boots traditionally worn by tragic actors.

She often holds a sword or a club in one hand and the tragic mask in the other.She is depicted wearing a crown of cypress on her head.

Suite Melpomene is 20 m2.

It is located on the second floor, with a window view over bustling "Ethnikis Antistaseos str.", a commercial street of the old city, and the rooftops of the houses of the old city.
