is a creature from ancient Greece that appears in Jason and the
Argonauts and Ulysses and the Sirens and many other books. Besides being beautiful
looking, even though it has a woman's head on a bird body, they sing
wonderful songs which draw men to them from the sea to the coast
where they live. These songs also put them to sleep, which makes
them very easy for the Sirens to kill. In Greek mythology only three
are mentioned: Parthenope, Ligea, and Leucosia.
