Circe is Greek minor goddess of magic (witch or nymph, enchantress or sorceress). Daughter of Helios, god of the sun, and Perse an Oceanid. Her brothers were Aeetes, the keeper of the Golden Fleece, and Perses. Her sister was Pasiphaë, the wife of King Minos and mother of the Minotaur. Circe invited Odysseus' crew to a feast, laced with one of her magical potions, and turned them all into swine.
