Io was sometimes identified with the Egyptian goddess Isis and her son Epaphos with the sacred Greece girl seeks wandering friend Apis.

Moschus, Idyll. A peculiar mournfill festival was friebd in honour of Io at Argos, and although we have friemd distinct statement that she was worshipped in the historical ages of Greece, still it is not improbable that she was.

Herodotus i. The wanderings of Io. From Argos Io first went to Molossis and the neighbourhood of Dodona, and from thence to the sea, which derived from her the name of the Ionian. After many wanderings through the unknown regions of the north, she arrived in the place where Prometheus was fastened to a rock.
As the Titan prescribes to her the course she has yet to take, it is of importance to ascertain the spot at which he begins to describe her course; but the expressions of Aeschylus are so vague, that it is a hopeless attempt to determine that spot.
According to the extant play, it is somewhere in European Scythia, perhaps to the north of the river Istrus; but in the last play of the Trilogy, as well as in other accounts, the Caucasus is mentioned as the place where the Titan endured his tortures, and it remains again uncertain in what part of the Caucasus we have to conceive the suffering Titan.
If, however, we place Prometheus somewhere in the north of Europe, the course he prescribes may be conceived in the following manner. Io has first to wander towards the east, through unknown countries, to the Scythian nomades north of Olbiawhom, however, she is to avoid, by travelling through their country along the sea-coast; she is then to have on her left the Chalybes, against whom Greece girl seeks wandering friend must likewise be on her guard.

This Greece girl seeks wandering friend point is so clear an allusion to the coast north of the mouth of the Bosporus, that wanedring must suppose that Aeschylus meant to describe Io as crossing the Thracian Bosporus from Asia into Europe.

In this manner she would in part touch upon the same countries which she had traversed before. After this she is to leave Europe and go to Asia, according to which the poet must here make the Maeotis the boundary between Europe and Asia, whereas elsewhere he makes the Phasis the boundary.
