Who was Damo?

Damo was a Pythagorean philosopher said by many to have been the daughter of Pythagoras and Theano.

Little is known about the life of Damo. Tradition said that she was the daughter of Pythagoras and Theano. According to one story, Pythagoras bequeathed his writings to Damo, and she kept them safe, refusing to sell them, believing that poverty and her father's solemn injunctions were more precious than gold. Damo, in turn, passed the writings on to her daughter Bitale. According to Iamblichus, she was a sister of Telauges.
