"Like a skilled helmsman, Kleio (Clio), queen of song, steer my thoughts straight now, if ever before."

"Trusting in it and in the Mousai (Muses) of the crimson headdress I for my part display this gift of songs If it was indeed flowering Kleio (Clio) who made it [the song] drip into my heart, there will be delight in the words of the songs that proclaim him to the people."

"And Kleio (Clio) went on to speak yet again, resting her arm upon her sister's shoulder."

"Hesiod even gives their names [the Muses'] when he writes: ‘Kleio, Euterpe, and Thaleia, Melpomene, Terpsikhore and Erato, and Polymnia, Ourania, Kalliope too, of them all the most comely.’

To each of the Mousai (Muses) men assign her special aptitude for one of the branches of the liberal arts, such as poetry, song, pantomimic dancing, the round dance with music, the study of the stars, and the other liberal arts. For the name of each Mousa, they say, men have found a reason appropriate to her. Kleio (Clio) is so named because the praise which poets sing in their encomia bestows great glory (kleos ) upon those who are praised."

"Clio. to thee, O Muse, has been vouchsafed the power to know the hearts of the gods and the ways by which things come to be."
