Muses are inspirational Goddesses in Greek mythology. There is some confusion as to the true number of Muses. I have seen as little as three and as many as nine. The confusion comes from Alexander the Great and his generals making true wisdom nonsense, so the average person would not understand. Muse comes from the Greek ‘mousa’, which is a type of Goddess and literally means art or poetry. Solon says Muses were a “key to a good life”. Pindar says “to have a Muse is to excel in arts”. Muses became associated with temples, springs, fountains and caves, but later the sites were all redirected to the Apollo cult.
