An ancient instrument related to the harp. The lyre does not have the triangular shape of the modern harp, but instead the strings are strung perpendicularly to the soundbox, with two arms connecting the soundbox to the yoke. The yoke supports the strings opposite the soundbox. This instrument was used in ancient Greece and Rome.
