Saesara

Summary

In Greek mythology, Saesara (Ancient Greek: Σαισάρᾳ) was an Eleusinian princess as the daughter of King Celeus[1] and possibly Metaneira, and thus probably the sister of Callidice, Demo, Cleisidice, Callithoe,[2] Diogeneia, Pammerope,[3] Demophon, and Triptolemus. She married Crocon and became the mother of Meganeira, wife of Arcas, son of Zeus and Callisto.[4]
