Legend has it that the musician Orpheus was killed by the frenzied female followers of the god Dionysus, the Maenads, who tore him to pieces. Even after Orpheus was dead, however, his head still continued to sing songs, accompanied by the music of his lyre. Orpheus' head and lyre floated down the Hebrus River to the Mediterranean, and they eventually washed ashore on the island of Lesbos. The inhabitants of the island found his head and buried it there, while his lyre was mysteriously transported into the heavens.
