The constellation Cygnus is associated with the myth of Leda and the Swan.  It is represented here on a terracotta water jar made around 330 BCE in Apulia in Italy.  Leda was the wife of the king of Sparta and the god Zeus seduced her in the guise of a swan. The jar is in the Getty Villa in Malibu, California.

Agis I was a king of Sparta and eponym of the Agiad dynasty. He was the son of Eurysthenes, first monarch of this dynasty, which ruled the city along with the Eurypontids. His genealogy was traced through Aristodemus, Aristomachus, Cleodaeus and Hyllus all the way to Heracles, and he belongs to mythology rather than to history.
