Goddess of persuasion, Peitho was the daughter of Ate (possibly) and sister of Tyche or Eunomia.

She was worshipped in Athens thanks to Theseus, and was one of Aphrodites maids. With Eros she had Hygieia, with Pan Iynx and she also protected marriages.

The Romans called her Suada, and from her Latin name we have the word persuade.
