Welcome

HELICON, a mountain range… in ancient Greece, celebrated in classical literature as the favourite haunt of the Muses… On the fertile eastern slopes stood a temple and grove sacred to the Muses… Hard by were the famous fountains, Aganippe and Hippocrene, the latter fabled to have gushed from the earth at the tread of the winged horse Pegasus, whose favourite browsing place was there. … many of its herbs possessed a miraculous healing virtue.     – 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica[1]
