ERINYS

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?

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Erinys graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Erinys 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 Erinys statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Erinys. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
