TELESILLA
Of Argos, A lyric poetess, who flourished about the year 508 B.C. After a defeat of the Argives, she is said to have placed herself at the head of a band of Argive women, and to have repelled an attack of the Spartan king Cleomenes. The figure of a woman in front of the temple of Aphrodite at Argos, with books lying at her feet, while she herself is looking at a helmet, as though about to put it on, was said to represent Telesilla [Pausanias, ii § 20 Section 7]. She is said to have become a poetess because, on consulting an oracle respecting her health, she received as answer that she would receive health from the Muses. Scarcely anything remains of her poems, which consisted of hymns to Apollo and Artemis.
