The Furies | Roman Mythology

(also known as the Dirae)

The Furies—Megaera, Tisiphone and Alecto—were three daughters of the Terra Mater who were conceived by Uranus. The Furies punished criminals, especially murderers, and represented conscience.

The Furies of Roman mythology come from the Furies of Greek myths, which are also known as the Erinýes.
