Clio, one of the nine Greek muses, was later referred to as the Muse of History. A daughter of Zeus, Clio was highly regarded for her brilliant poetry and heroic acts. Her image usually includes a parchment scroll (an ancient source of record), a set of tablets (another ancient source of records), books, and/or a clarion (or trumpet). In her hair, she wears a laurel wreath. The image of Clio on this page comes from a fresco painted on the wall of the Murecine hotel, a large hotel and restaurant located on the outskirts of Pompeii, Italy. The city of Pompeii was destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D.
