Thalia (Ancient Greek: Θάλεια, “the joyous, the flourishing”), also spelled Thaleia, was the goddess who presided over comedy and idyllic poetry. In this context her name means “flourishing”, because the praises in her songs flourish through time. She was the daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, the eighth-born of the nine Muses.
According to pseudo-Apollodorus, she and Apollo were the parents of the Corybantes. Other ancient sources, however, gave the Corybantes different parents.
She was portrayed as a young woman with a joyous air, crowned with ivy, wearing boots and holding a comic mask in her hand.
