Mnemosyne/ Μνημοσύνη (Roman equivalent: Moneta) was a Titaness, goddess of Memory and the inventor of Words.

Mnemosyne was also a goddess of time. She
represented the rote memorisation required, before the introduction of
writing, to preserve the stories of history and sagas of myth. She was
the daughter of Uranus (Heaven) and Gaia (Earth). Uranus
and Gaia were the parents of the first generation of Titans, consisting
of twelve elder gods/goddesses, being Mnemosyne included among them.

Via: La Audacia de Aquiles

Picture: Mnemosyne, by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Painted in 1876 to 1881. Jane Morris was the model.
