DefinitionGreek mythology, a sorceress who could, with potions and incantations, turn people into beasts. In Homer's Odyssey , she changes Odysseus' companions into swine. In the 1930s the expression 'hot dish of cold Circe' referred to a sexually attractive but cold and unresponsive woman who would thus turn a man into mush (or swine).
