Ananke (ἀνάγκη, necessity), in Greek mythology, was a personification of this idea in the Orphian theory of creation. Ananke was a loved one of the Creator, and gave birth to Moera (destiny). The Parcae are also called her daughters. She is a powerful goddess, against whom the deities themselves do not battle. Upon Acrocorinthus there was a temple of Ananke and of Bia (power), which no one was permitted to enter.
