THE AN o; wife of Metapontus, king of Icaria. She was barren, and, her husband being greatly desirous of having heirs, she presented him some supposititious children as her offspring. She afterwards actually became a mother; and when her own children had grown up, she persuaded them to attempt the lives of the others, while engaged in the chase. In the struggle, however, her own children were slain, and Theano died of despair.
