Amphion & Zethos

The sons of Zeus and the princess Antiope of Thebes. The boys grew up amongst shepherds on the mountain Kitharion. The queen of Thebes, Dirke, tormented her stepdaughter, so Antiope fled to her sons and told them what she had been through.

The boys then captured queen Dirke, and tied her to a wild bull hat dragged her to death. Amphion and Zethos then became rulers of Thebes and built a great wall around the city.

Amphion was extremely strong and carried the huge stones for the wall, and Zethos made the stones pile up and form a wall by playing his lyre.

They were both married, Amphion to Niobe and Zethos to Aedon (Procne).
