Astreea

Astreea

(fairness), in Greek mythology, was a goddess whose descent is given differently. She was either a daughter of Jupiter and Themis, or of Astraeus and Hemera (goddess of the day), or of Apollo and Chrysothemis, and she is also often declared one and the same with Ceres, Isis, Fortuna, and Themis. In the Golden Age she caused justice and equity among men. When this age ceased, she left the earth, and was placed in the heavens as the constellation of Virgo.
