According to Greek Mythology, Clytie was abandoned by her lover Helios while he was having an affair. Clytie intended to win Helios back by taking away his new love, but her actions only hardened his heart against her. She stripped herself and sat naked for nine days staring at the sun. After nine days she was transformed into a sunflower.
