Pandora of Thessaly

In Greek mythology, Pandora (Ancient Greek: Πανδώρα, derived from πᾶς "all" and δῶρον "gift", thus "all-gifted" or "all-giving")[1] was a daughter of King Deucalion and Pyrrha who was named after her maternal grandmother, the more famous Pandora. Her brother was Hellen.

According to the Hesiodic Catalogue of Women (fr. 5), she was the mother of Graecus by the god Zeus.[2] In some accounts, Pandora's children by Zeus were called Melera and Pandorus.[3]
