Theano is alternately suggested by historians of the present day to be the wife, student, or daughter of Pythagoras. Virtually nothing about her life is known, and many of the texts attributed to her may have been written by others, “Theano” becoming a genre of Pythagorean thought unto itself. Much of the work, which survives mostly in fragments, concerns the management of home and families according to the principles of Pythagoras.
