The Spider is a person of Greek mythology, was the daughter of rosin porfyrovafou Idmonos .

The Arachne boasted that she was superior in the art of weaving from the goddess Athena, who morphed into old and advised her to be more modest . The Spider does not comply and began even embroiders loves of the gods to humiliate them in the game with Athena. Athena then struck her on the forehead and tore the tissue , and then the Spider hanged , but the goddess cursed her to continue her work hanging , transforming the namesake insect. Theophilus mentions in his work:

"ὡς ἄρα ἐν τῇ Ἀττικῇ δύο ἐγένοντο ἀδελφοὶ, Φάλαγξ μὲν ἄρσην, θήλεια δ' Ἀράχνη τοὔνομα· καὶ ὁ μὲν Φάλαγξ ἔμαθε παρὰ τῆς Ἀθηνᾶς τὰ περὶ τὴν ὁπλομαχίαν, ἡ δὲ Ἀράχνη τὰ περὶ τὴν ἱστοποιίαν· μιγέντας δὲ ἀλλήλοις στυγηθῆναι ὑπὸ τῆς θεοῦ καὶ μεταβληθῆναι εἰς ἑρπετὰ, ἃ δὴ καὶ συμβαίνει ὑπὸ τῶν ἰδίων τέκνων κατεσθίεσθαι (Θεόφιλος, Fragmenta 5, 3)"
