ABROTA

ΑΒΡΩΤΗ

The daughter of Onchestus, the Boeotian, and the wife of Nisus, king of Megaris. On her death Nisus commanded all the Megarian women to wear a garment of the same kind as Abrota had worn, which was called aphabroma (aphabrôma), and was still in use in the time of Plutarch. (Quaest. Graec. p. 295,a.)
