I later found a Wikipedia site (embedded link below) which has names and links to images and information on many other of the Wushuangpu, including the two female figures on your mug:
Cao E (Chinese: 曹娥, pinyin: Cáo É) (130–143), was a young girl from Shangyu District, Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province in China. She was the daughter of the shaman Cao Xu. The girl died in the year 143 while trying to save her father from drowning. In the year 151 a temple was built for her and the river in which she and her father drowned, was named after her.
Pang E (Chinese: 龐娥) or Zhao E (Chinese: 趙娥) was a Chinese noble woman from the Eastern Han dynasty to the Three Kingdoms period. Born in Gansu province, she was the mother of the Cao Wei politician, Pang Yui. She murdered her family's killer before turning herself in. Her case was recorded in Huangfu's Biographies of Exemplary Women (列女傳) which was supposed to be an instructional text for Confucian women. Due to her act of extreme bravery, she was immortalized as one of the memorable acts of courage and virtue performed by a woman in Chinese history. Zhao E was famous as one of the heroines depicted in the Wu Shuang Pu (無雙譜, Table of Peerless Heroes) by Jin Guliang.
