Greek - Daughter of Erysichthon. Demeter punished Erysichthon for cutting down trees in her sacred grove, causing him insatiable hunger. After selling all his possessions for food, he finally sold his own daughter. In some accounts, Poseidon enabled her to escape from her purchasers only for her to be sold again and again by her father. In other accounts, Poseidon changed her into various animals which collected food for her father, who, in the end, ate himself. Also commonly referred to as Maestra.
