Io was one of Hera’s priestesses and Zeus (aka Jupiter) seduced her. Zeus changed Io into a cow to hide his indiscretion from Hera (aka Juno). Io was banished by her father and wandered the earth. Later she wound up in Egypt:
Having thus settled in Egypt, Io made a statue of Demeter, and this goddess was then called ‘Isis’. …the Egyptians also gave Io the name ‘Isis’, and Io-Isis, they say, was made a goddess by Zeus. … Isis discovered many drugs, and was versed in healing, giving aid during sleep while standing above the sick. …They call Apollo her son, and they say that it was Isis who instructed him in healing and divination…(Source)
Jupiter’s moon Io is one of the most exotic places in the solar system. It is the most volcanic body known, with lava flows, lava lakes, and giant calderas covering its sulfurous landscape. It has billowing volcanic geysers spewing sulfurous plumes to over 500 kilometers high. Its mountains are much taller than those on Earth, reaching heights of 16 kilometers (52,000 feet).
