Euterpe - XVIII

The Muse of Lyric Poetry (The Wellpleasing One)

Euterpe, whose name translates as 'giver of much delight' is considered the muse of music and lyric poetry, her attribute was the double flute.

Which is a bit hard to see in the scan is that Ladenspelder made some errors in his copy - in the right bottom corner he engraved the numeral as '13' instead of '18', and in the left bottom corner a 0 instead of a 'D'.
