[144] Αἴθρα: Pittheus, king of Troezene, was son of Pelops. His daughter Aethra bore Theseus to Aegeus, king of Athens. She, living in Athens, had under her care Helen whom Theseus had carried off from Sparta, until Castor and Polydeuces freed their sister Helen and captured Aethra at or near Athens. So Aethra was made Helen's slave, first in Sparta and afterwards in Ilios. But this seems to be a post-Homeric story.

Κλυμένη: likewise a slave brought with Helen from Sparta, cf. vs. 386 ff.

βοῶπις: see on A 551.
