In Greek mythology, Mese[pronunciation?] (Μήση) was one of the three Muses of the lyre that were worshipped at Delphi, where the Temple of Apollo and the Oracle were located. Her name was also the middle of the seven notes of the lyre. Her sisters that were worshipped along with her were Nete and Hypate. These three muses were comparable to the original three, Aoide, Melete, and Mneme. Alternatively, they were Cephisso, Apollonis, and Borysthenis, which portrayed them as the daughters of Apollo.
