GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

ERINYS

Greek Vengeance Goddess

Furious Goddess of Revenge

Somebody must really have upset her. She is wrathful and vengeful and utterly obsessed with getting her own back in the most spiteful way. She is one — or possibly all — of the FURIES and with that amount of fury we are not surprised.

According to some sources, she is the mother of the wrong-footed horse ARION via POSEIDON. She is sometimes confused with DEMETER but that hardly seems likely. Is that really a reason to be so nasty?
