A very enjoyable puzzle that had a lot of thematic material packed into the symmetrical grid, not an easy task. Once I saw the possibility of EUTERPE and AGLAIA it was easy to fill in the rest of the thematic entries, so the puzzle did give way rather quickly without even a look at the relevant clues. LACHESIS was a complete unknown, and EUPHROSYNE and POLYHYMNIA rang only faint bells; these were the only ones I was not able to fill in immediately the theme became apparent.
It was very wise of The TaLL'n to force us to solve the thematic clues, or at least enough to establish the order of the three words. Some of these clues were quite tough and difficult to solve cold. They became easier when you knew what you were looking for.
