Themis Ramnoundos (the IASL logo)

Themis Ramnoundos

Themis was a goddess in ancient greek mythology, titan, daughter of Ouranos and Gaias, Jeus’s wife and adviser. She represented God’s Law, hospitality, Justice, law and order. Her children were Ores (Hour), Eunomia (Rule of law), Diki (Trial) and Irini (Peace) who also represent her virtues. From her mother she inherited the ability to foretell and Delph’s oracle.

Themis called the Gods over every time they were going to hold a meeting and she maintained order. She was the one who announced, in the end, Jeus’s decisions to humans. She was worshiped in almost every Greek city. In Athens existed a sanctum donated to Themis near Asklipian’s temple towards west.

She was represented with her eyes binded (symbol of unprejudiced) and holding a balance or the horn of plenty. In some vessels she was seated in tripod and delivered oracles. Her priests observed the law.
