Myths about the Roman Goddess Nemesis
Nemisis, daughter of Jupiter and Necessity, or, according to some, of Oceanus and Nox, had the care of revenging the crimes which human justice left unpunished. The word Nemesis is of Greek origin, nor was there any Latin word that expressed it, therefore the Latin poets usually styled this goddess Rhamnusia, from a famous statue of Nemesis at Rhamnus in Attica. She is likewise called Adrastea, because Adrastus, king of Argos, first raised an altar to her. Nemesis is plainly divine vengeance, or the eternal justice of God, which severely punishes the wicked actions of men. She is sometimes represented with wings, to denote the celerity with which she follows men to observe their actions.
