In Greek mythology, Calliope (Καλλιόπη, 'that of the beautiful voice') is the muse of epic poetry and eloquence. Like all muses, she is the daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne (memory).
She is represented with the characteristics of a girl of majestic air, wearing a golden crown, emblem that according to Hesiod indicates her supremacy over the other muses. She is adorned with garlands, carrying a trumpet in one hand and an epic poem in the other.

She also said to be the mother of Orpheus.
