The namesake KLEIO pronounced (“klee-oh”) was one of the nine muses in Greek mythology, and a daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne. As you are probably aware, the Muses were thought to be the source of inspiration for the arts. Kleio in particular, was associated with heroic poetry, and history. She is also the goddess of music, song and dance.

In art and sculpture, Kleio is depicted holding a scroll, which is fitting for our Chapter, as it may confer or translate to a manuscript for film, a novel, a play, a poem or a historic account. She usually wears a laurel wreath and may be carrying a trumpet. She also holds special meaning about the passage of generations, time and history.

The Daughters of Penelope cultivates the ideals and traditions of Hellenism; Chapter Kleio is first chapter to have arts and culture as our primary focus.

A wonderful evening of new beginnings, friendship and sisterhood for the members of Chapter Kleio. Hosted by Chapter Athena No 2.
