THE DESIGN

Alcyone was a Thessalian princess, daughter of King Aeolus. She later went on to marry Ceyx, and became the queen of Trachis. Alcyone and Ceyx were very happy together in Trachis, and often sacrilegiously called each other "Zeus" and "Hera". This angered Zeus, so while Ceyx was at sea, Zeus threw a thunderbolt at his ship.
 
Alcyone continued to pray at the altar of Hera for his safe return. The story goes that Morpheus (the God of Dreams) appeared to Alcyone in her dreams to tell her of his death, and she threw herself into the sea in her grief.
