Greek - Daughter of Erysichthon. Wife of Autolycus, some say. In an attempt to satisfy the insatiable hunger which had been inflicted on him by Demeter, her father sold all his possessions and, finally, his daughter Mestra. She prayed to Poseidon who changed her shape on each occasion that she was sold so that she escaped her purchasers, only to be sold again. In some lore, occasionally referred to as Mestra, Metra or Metra.
