One of the Harpies. Her name roughly translates as ‘Swift Foot’ or ‘Racer’. She had the body of a bird with a hag like face, drooping breasts, bear’s ears and clawed talons. She also had bat like wings and contaminated whatever she touched. The Harpies used to harass a blind seer called Phineus until they were driven away by Jason and the Argonauts. The son of Boreas the North Wind banished these creatures under the island of Crete in order to help the seer. Harpies are personifications of the stormy winds.
