Circe - Sorceress from Colchis
In Greek mythology, Circe was a sorceress and lesser divinity known today for her scenes in The Odyssey where she turns Odysseus’s men into pigs. Much like later witchcraft traditions, Circe employs the use of potions and a magical wand.
Circe was the daughter of Helios (the sun god) and Perse (an Oceanid) and was married to the prince of Cholchis before she murdered him and was marooned on the island of Aeaea.
