Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Greek mythology, Pasithea or Pasithee is the youngest of the Graces, and goddess of hallucination or hallucinatory drugs, her name meaning "acquired sight" (Greek pasis, "acquired", and thea "sight, goddess"). In some accounts she is a daughter of Zeus, in others the offspring of Hera and Dionysus. She was married to Hypnos, the god of sleep. [1]

Pasithea is also the name of one of the Nereids. [2]
