The truth behind these stories:


Once upon a time, people did not have the knowledge we have today, and so many strange phenomena that they could not explain were attributed to mythological creatures or acts of gods
For example, child mortality.
Newborns not having the necessary and meticulous care often did not manage to survive
the grieving parents attributed the event to mythological creatures the jesters
Gello , in Greek mythology, is a female demon or revenant who threatens the reproductive cycle by causing infertility, miscarriage, and infant mortality. By the Byzantine era, the gelloudes were considered a class of beings.
Women believed to be under demonic possession by gelloudes might stand trial or be subjected to exorcism.

According to ancient myth, Gello was a young woman who died a virgin, and returned as a ghost (Greek: phantasma) to do harm to the children of others. The myth is given as an explanation to a proverb by the 2nd-century compiler Zenobius.[8][9] It is noted that Sappho mentioned her, implying that Gello was a feared bane of children at least as far back as the 6th century BC.[10][a]
