In Greek mythology, Phaea is the name of the Crommyonian Sow — a wild, man-eating female pig — Theseus slays as either 1) part of his required labors or 2) as an independent attempt to prove his manhood/bravery above and beyond his required labors. She is also identified as the mother of the Calydonian Boar Artemis sent to punish a king who neglected to worship her.
