ATROPOS
Also known as ATTROPUS

A picture showing the legend of ATROPOS taken from our Greek mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Greek Gods, Greek Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Cut! She is the goddess of fateful snips

The oldest of the three FATES, she's the one who cuts the Thread of Life with her fatal scissors. These are always razor-sharp and there's no danger of split-ends.

It may be possible to tie the ends back together but we don't think anyone has ever tried it.

Her Roman name is MORTA, which sounds far more fitting.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Atropos graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Atropos movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Atropos statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Atropos. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
