The myth

Pierides they were deities of Greek mythology, that inspired every intellectual creation. Pierides were the daughters of Zeus and the Mnemosen. They were born in Pieria (so called Pierides), grown up by the nymph Epheme and were taught music by Apollo, who taught them so well that they became so good at signing and the Lyra, that they won the Sirens, who after theri defeat were drowned in the sea. When they were signing and dancing, they fascinated the people so much, that they forgot to eat and died. As they had no other occupation than signing and dancing, they chose the most beautiful places for that. So they went down from the Olympus to Elikona, where together with Apollo they were composing, and they took the name ELIKONIADES. The Athenians had dedicated to Muses a tree planted hill near to Ilissos and they were worshipped them, offering them the name ILISIADES.
