These were maiden statues made from gold and found in the first temple of Apollo at Delphi. The maidens represented goddesses and the statues possessed the power to sing. It is said that they were crafted form the smith god Hephaestus. Their name comes from ‘Khryseiai Keledones’ meaning ‘Golden Charmers’.
