Chiron, the centaur from Greek mythology, teaching the young Achilles to play the lyre.

A lyre (pronounce to rhyme with "fire") is an instrument which is like a mixture between a harp and a guitar. It is held in one hand and the strings are strummed using the other hand. Lyres were among the first string instruments to be invented.
