DEïANEIRA / DēIáNEIRA

Deianira (Ancient Greek: Deïaneira “Δηϊάνειρα” Dēiáneira “Δηϊάνειρα”) is a figure in Greek mythology whose name translates as "man-destroyer"or "destroyer of her husband". The better-known Deianira was Heracles's second wife and, in late Classical accounts, his unwittingly murderer, killing him with the poisoned Shirt of Nessus. She is the main character in the play Women of Trachis by Sophocles. Deianira is also the name of a second character in Greek mythology, an Amazon killed by Heracles during his ninth labour, the quest for the girdle of Hippolyta.
