Mimallones
Derog.

In Macedon, according to Plutarch's Life of Alexander, they were called Mimallones and Klodones, monikers derived from the feminine art of spinning wool. These warlike parthenoi ("virgins") or priestess of God from the hills were under the watch of shamanic Dionysios Pseudanor. They strategically routed an invading enemy away by disguising men as rosy cheeked women. In southern Greece they were described as Bacchae, Bassarides, Thyiades, Potniades and given other epithets.
