Eurynome

(yo͞orĭn`əmē), in Greek mythology, daughter of Oceanus and Tethys and mother, by Zeus, of the Graces. In the mythology of the Pelasgians, an aboriginal non-Greek people living in Greece before the Mycenaean period, she rose alone out of chaos and separated the earth from the sky. She created the great serpent Ophion and mated with him. Thus she gave birth to all existing things.

We see this with Telemachus when he is bathed by Polycaste and emerges from the bath "in form like unto the immortals" and when Odysseus is bathed by the housewife Eurynome and "forth from the bath he came, in form like unto the immortals." (6) After he is bathed by the Sicilian handmaid, "great-hearted" Laertes "came forth from the bath, and his dear son marveled at him, seeing him in presence like unto the immortal gods." (7) In referring to the baths in this way, Homer introduces the notion that baths can have a transformative effect, and it is significant that in Homer this is reserved for men.
