IV. CIRCE: The enchantress who changed men into beasts. Ulysses was given a sprig from a certain plant by Hermes which allowed him to resist her charms.
V. PANDORA: When Pandora was created by Zeus, he ordered all the Gods to endow her with some of their attributes. She was also given a box, but forbidden to open it. Her curiosity about its contents overwhelmed her – she opened it and all the evils of the world flew out. Too late she closed, but she managed to prevent the escape of Hope.
VI. SELENE: The Goddess of the Moon who drives across the night sky in her chariot to visit the sleeping Endymion.
