Pleiadis were seven sisters, gifted with eternity and taken in the eponimous constellation.
Their names were Taigeta, Elettra, Alcione, Asterope,Celeno,Maia, Merope, and they were daughters
of Atlante, the Giant holding the whole Earth over his shoulders, and of Pleione.
All the Pleiadis were married with Gods but one of them ,Merope, whose star is actually then
the less brilliant of the lot, and who was taken as wife by Sisifo, feeling deeply ashamed for
One day that the Pleiadis with their mother Pleione were harassed by the mighty hunter Orion, who fell
immediatly in love with them and who, for five years, kept on running back to catch them, till Zeus saved them

It's also told that one of the sisters, Elettra, who was creating the genesis of Troianus, when
Greeks destroyed Troia went so desperate that she fell fom sky and became a comet star.
