(Ἱστορίς; Historís). Daughter of the seer Teiresias (hence the probable derivation from *ιδ-, ‘to see, to know’). In the context of Theban statues of Pharmacides (= Moirai), Paus. 9,11,3 tells us that H. was able to outwit them like Galinthias in Nicander. The epithet of Juno Historia (CIL XI 3573) can probably be traced back to H. .
