Terpsichore - XIII of Mantegna Tarot

Terpsicore - XIII

The Muse of Dance ond Chorals (Delight in Dancing)

The name 'Terpsicore' translates as 'she who rejoices in dance'. and thus she is the muse of dance and dramatic chorus, and sometimes of lyric poetry.

The Mantegna card has her standing and playing a lute-like instrument - other than her usual depiction of sitting and playing a lyre.
