FURIES
Also known as ERINYES, EUMENIDES

A picture showing the legend of FURIES 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!

These are the Goddesses of Rough Justice

No! No! No! If you see three black robed Goddesses with whips and snaky hair loitering outside your door, you can bet your boots you have been up to something anti-social and they have come to get you.

At least one of them is called ERINYS. They sometimes go under the name of Eumenides, or the 'Benevolent Ones'. But their 'benevolence' is not for your benefit. Oh no.

Made from the freshly spilt blood of URANUS, their mission is to torment the guilty. Not to mention terrify everyone else.

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