She was the Greek goddess of vengeance, and her province was especially in the area of crimes that had gone unpunished. She was seen as the goddess of punishment, the tracker down of the wrongdoer, the giver of luck to the fortunate, and the taker of fortune from the unworthy. Also called Adrasteia and Rhamnusia, she was represented as a thoughtful, beautiful figure of queenly aspect, with a winged crown on her head, and driving a carriage pulled by griffins.She is said to have been the daughter of either Okeanos or Erebos, with Zeus as her lover, and Helen as their daughter. To help her execute her justice, she had three attendants, Dike (Justice), Poena(Punishment) and Erinys (Vengeance).
