Callistea in Grecian usage, was a festival which was celebrated in honor of Juno by the inhabitants of Lesbos, at which beauty took the prize. A similar festival was that of the Eleusinian Ceres, instituted by Cypselus, and celebrated by the Parrhasians in Arcadia. The most charming maiden was decorated, and the women were called Chrysophores (goldbearers).
