Katina was a resident of the town of Opous in Lokris, Greece during the 5th century BCE. She was the wife of Pedasos and the adoptive mother of Supideo.


During the Peloponnesian War the Spartan misthios Kassandra was passing through the village when she overheard an argument between Katina, Pedasos and Supideo. Stepping in, Kassandra learned that Supideo had visited the Pythia and had been foretold by her that he would do something dreadful to his parents. This led to Supideo asking Kassandra to recover his sword and shield so that they may be protected. The sword was held by Kosta, the village blacksmith, and the shield had been stolen by the female leader of the bandit camp by the Red Lake.[1]

Kassandra managed to retrieve the sword and the shield, momentarily setting Supideo's mind at ease until Katina and Pedasos revealed to him that the bandit leader and Kosta were, in fact, his real parents.[1]
