Thamyris (Θάμυρις, Thamiris in classical Greek). In Greek Mythology he was a musician and aoidos of Thracian origin, son of Philammon and the nymph Argiope. As is told in the Iliad, Thamyris was so proud of his skills he challenged the Muses to a singing and lyre competition, proposing as his prize to be able to sleep with every one of them. The Muses, despising him, blinded him and took his poetic and musical skills away.
