Mnemosyne, daughter of Gaia and Uranus, lay with Zeus for nine nights in order to conceive nine Muses. She and Achelous are sometimes considered the parents of the Sirens.
According to legend, prior to Mnemosyne, memory didn’t exist. She may be invoked to help preserve memory and to access past-life memories.
