Tag Archives: Eunomia: good order – Greek goddess of law and legislation

Eunomia was a Greek goddess of law and legislation, and one of the daughters of Themis and Zeus.

Eunomia was the goddess of law and legislation and one of the Second Generation of the Horae along with her sisters Dikē and Eirene. The Horae were law and order goddesses who maintained the stability of society, and were worshipped primarily in the cities of Athens, Argos and Olympia. From Pindar:

Eunomia and that unsullied fountain Dikē, her sister, sure support of cities; and Eirene of the same kin, who are the stewards of wealth for mankind — three glorious daughters of wise-counselled Themis.[1]

Eunomia’s name, together with that of her sisters, formed a Hendiatris Good Order, Justice, and Peace.
