Muse

Mythological Dictionary

Muse or music or museum or mosaic.
The nine muses were the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne ("memory"), whose province was inspiration in the arts, particularly poetry and music; from muse we derive the word music. The Greek word mouseion ("place of the Muses"), in Latin museum, has given us museum, a place for the displaying works of artistic, historical, or scientific interest. From the adjective mousaicos ("pertaining to the Muses") comes mosaic, a picture or design made up of small colored tiles or stones.
