Frequently Asked Questions

What does the name Autolycus mean?

Who was the father of Autolycus in Greek mythology?

Pausanias instead states that Autolycus' real father was Daedalion. In some accounts, his mother was also called Telauge. Depending on the source, Autolycus was the husband of Mestra (who could change her shape at will and was a daughter of Erysichthon ), or of Neaera,, or of Amphithea.

Who is Autolycus in the Winter's Tale?

Autolycus appears as a paragon of thievery in Thomas De Quincey's "On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts". A comic thief in Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale boasts that he is named after Autolycus and, like the latter's father, Mercury/Hermes, is "a snapper-up of unconsidered trifles".

Why was Autolycus called the Master of thievery?

He had a helmet to make him invisible. Autolycus, master of thievery, was also well known for stealing Sisyphus' herd right from underneath him – Sisyphus, who was commonly known for being a crafty king that killed guests, seduced his niece and stole his brothers' throne and was banished to the throes of Tartarus by the gods.
