Podarke (Danaid) and the other Danaids killing their husbands on their wedding night

Titled

Podarke was one of the fifty Danaids (Daughters of Danaus) who took part in the mass marriage to the sons of Aigyptos. Euippe married Pieria. That night she along with fourty-eight of her fourty-nine sisters slew their husbands.

Punishment

When Podarke and the other Danaids who had murdered their husbands they were sent to Tartarus and were forced to carry water from the river Styx in a bowls (or jars according to some) with holes over to a tub which leaks at multiple parts. Podarke and the others were told only when they filled the tub could they wash away their sins. The Danaids continue this essentially impossible task to this very day.
