Baude Cordier, Belle Bone Sage, Codex Chantilly, ca. 1400

“Score of Baude Cordier’s chanson “Belle, bonne, sage,” from The Chantilly Manuscript, Musée Condé 564

Erato                                                    The Lovely-Erato, the "Lovely" is the Muse of Lyric Poetry, in particular poetry dealing with love.     Her name means "Desired" and is related to the name of Eros, whom we know as the Greek God of Love.     Erato invented the musical instrument, the kithara, an ancient seven-stringed lyre, although later on it was said that Apollo made the first kithara.     We get the modern word guitar from the Greek word kithara.

In Greek mythology, Erato is one of the Greek Muses. The name would mean "desired" or "lovely", Erato is the Muse of lyric poetry, especially love and erotic poetry.
