Peitho is the goddess of persuasion, seduction and charming speech. She is a handmaiden of Aphrodite and in the Dionysiaka she is also her daughter by Dionysos and the wife of Hermes.
When Zeus ordered the creation of Pandora, it was Peitho and the Kharites (Graces) who put golden necklaces around her neck. Jewelery was seen as a way to increase a woman's sexual attractiveness and persuasive abilities. Hermes then took Pandora to Epimetheus, who forgot the advice of his brother Prometheus not to accept any gift from Zeus, as soon as he saw her.

Pandora's Box

Peitho watched her mistress, golden Aphrodite, shower graces and beauty over this woman made of clay. A plain girl she had been and now just a look at her lit even Persuasion's loins on fire. She could not tear her gaze away: as beautiful as a star, graceful like a goddess, yes, utterly divine this mortal girl appeared. Not even when bright-eyed Athene girded and clothed her would her passion go away.
