A lyre was an ancient and portable stringed musical instrument.[2]


Lyres provided good accompaniment and background music for poems and epic recitals through the ages.[2]


The lyre was particularly associated with Amn. Such lyres were sold in Halambar Lutes & Harps in Waterdeep, a well-known musical instrument shop.[5]

Lyres were available for purchase through Aurora's Whole Realms Catalogue.[2]
