Äthra

Äthra, im griech. Mythus Tochter des Königs Pittheus von Trözen, von Ägeus (oder Poseidon)Mutter des Theseus. Dieser übergibt ihr die entführte Helena zur Hut. Als die Dioskuren die Schwester befreiten, ward A. gefangen und begleitete als Sklavin die Helena nach Troja. Nach der Eroberung der Stadt ward sie von ihren Enkeln Demophon und Akamas erkannt und nach Athen zurückgebracht. – Eine andre ist die Okeanide Ä., von Atlas Mutter der Hyaden.
