Mnemosyne

Mnemosyne was the goddess of memory. She was the daughter of Gaia and Uranus.

Mnemosyne's purpose was to give a name to all objects and give mortals to power to remember things. This made her important because she is the reason humans could communicate with each other.

Mnemosyne created the 9 muses by sleeping with Zeus for 9 nights.

Mnemosyne had a river in Hedes that was opposite of the river of Lethe. Her river made souls remember their time on Earth instead of forget it.
