Nemesis (Ancient Greek: Νέμεσις, literally: ‘assigning / distributing the deserved punishment’) is a figure from Greek mythology. She is the ruthless goddess of entitled revenge. Nemesis is the daughter of Nyx (“night”) and she obeys Zeus, although she is older than him. Hybris (Ὑβρις, “recklessness”) is punished by her.

Nemesis was also taken over by the Romans and retained its old name. Triumphant generals made sacrifices to her, and during the empire she was the patroness of the gladiators. On images, Nemesis (just like Lady Justice) carries a sword and scales. Her carriage is pulled by griffins.
