Who is Herpyllis?

Herpyllis of Stagira was Aristotle's mistress after his wife, Pythias, died

Together Aristotle and Herpyllis had a son, named Nicomachus after Aristotle's father. Nicomachus was quite young when Aristotle wrote his will, as can be seen from the fact that Nicanor, Aristotle's nephew by his sister Arimneste, is appointed guardian until Nicomachus came of age.
