Erin

Pheasant


In Frederick Hiebels’ The Gospel of Hellas the author describes scenes from Oresteia, the drama by Aeschylus:

“Here the Erinys, who were previously uncompromising instruments of destiny working in vengeance and fury, brought up from the netherworld and through the advice of Apollo, are won over by Pallas Athena. Athena gives them an abode on the hill of Ares where they sit as the conscience of the Twelve Judges of Areopagus. They were transformed into goddesses of mercy.”
