Literature
Daily Deity #128 Themis
This past week I began reading Euripides plays, well the full plays. I've read excerpts from them for years, especially Medea, which is also what I'm currently reading. In one of her speeches she invokes Themis and initially the significance of this escaped me.
Themis is a Titaness, but one of the good ones that ended up siding with the gods in the all out Titan War. Like the rest of the Titans, Themis is a daughter of Gaia and Uranus. Her role is being the Titan of Justice and Order, and she takes that job seriously, making her a rather stoic and solemn Titan. She also has a role as being the Titaness of prophecies, which ties more in to later events in her life that we'll get to in a moment.
Chances are that you've seen depictions of her throughout your life. If you've ever been to a court, which I hope you haven't, or if you've seen movies about trials or lawyers or something judicial, then you've probably seen the lady, blindfolded, who is holding the scales. Yeah, that lad
