In Greek mythology, the Sirens (Greek singular: ÃŽÂ£ÃŽÂµÃŽÂ¹ÃÂÃŽÂ®ÃŽÂ½ SeirÃ„â€œn; Greek plural: ÃŽÂ£ÃŽÂµÃŽÂ¹ÃÂÃ¡Â¿â€ ÃŽÂ½ÃŽÂµÃâ€š SeirÃ„â€œnes) were beautiful yet dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. Roman poets placed them on some small islands called Sirenum scopuli. In some later, rationalized traditions, the literal geography of the "flowery" island of Anthemoessa, or Anthemusa, is fixed: sometimes on Cape Pelorum and at others in the islands known as the Sirenuse, near Paestum, or in Capreae. All such locations were surrounded by cliffs and rocks. When Sirens are named, they are usually as daughters of the river god Achelous, fathered by Terpsichore, Melpomene, Sterope, or Chthon (the Earth). In Euripides' play, Helen (167), Helen in her anguish calls upon "Winged maidens, daughters of the Earth"). Although they lured mariners, the Greeks portrayed the Sirens in their "meadow starred with flowers" and not as sea deities. Roman writers linked the Sirens more closely to the sea, as daughters of Phorcys.
