Comments[edit]

I believe that the Erato that bore Arcas a child is a different character (a dryad). I've therefore removed the reference to that child in this article. T@nn 15:47, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't think Erato is the muse of crossword puzzles. Crossword puzzles did not exist in ancient Greece. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.250.39.66 (talk) 17:03, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Lavinia's Entry[edit]

According to F.A. Todd in the Classical Review (1931), Erato is appropriately invoked as the Muse of Lyric and Love Poetry to mark the entrance of Lavinia into the poem. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.23.128.31 (talk) 02:41, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Virgil's Aeneid[edit]

While interesting that Virgil refers to Erato in The Aeneid (vii.45-54), it is important to note that only a few books later (ix.696) he refers to Calliope as well. This should be clarified.Bobjohnson111980 (talk) 05:32, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
