    Tenth Muse - Sappho, whom the ancients distinguished by the title of the Tenth Muse, was born on the Island of Lesbos somewhere between 630 and 612 BC. Although married to a merchant, her poetry focuses on affections for women. That Sappho's poetry was not condemned in her time for its homoerotic content suggests that perhaps love between women was not persecuted then as it has been in more recent times. The term lesbian and sapphic have derived from her birthplace and her name respectively. Whilst not included in the exhibition because of a particular same sex partnership, she is included as an important role model and symbol for the lesbian community.
