Themisto

by Micha F. Lindemans
The daughter of Hypseus, second wife of Athamas. When the latter returned to his first wife Ino, Themisto tried to kill Ino's children. To recognize them at night she dressed Ino's children in black clothes and dressed her own in white. Ino, however, switched the clothes so Themisto killed her own children in stead.
