The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

PENIA

Greek Poverty Goddess

Also known as Penie

Goddess of Poverty

Does she bring it or take it away?

Either way, she’s worshiped by the poor, who can’t afford anything better. She obviously has to content herself with extremely humble offerings.

Penia is the consort of Porus — or should that be Poor Us?
