Lycra was the wife of Zeus after Hera temporarily left him. Upon hearing that he was to be remarried, Hera returned to discover that it all appeared to be a ploy to regain her love, seeing Zeus in a carriage with a block of wood. However, Zeus did in fact get married to Lycra, and when he heard that Hera was coming, he quickly turned her into a constellation and replaced her with a lump of wood, just in time for Hera to discover him.
