A Lyre

The Lyre is a stringed musical instrument. While it is the symbol of the Olympian Apollo, he did not invent it but he did barter for it.


On his very first day in the world Hermes was very busy one of the things he did was to steal Apollo's cows and use the entrails of as well as a tortoise shell to construct the very first lyre.
