Dike was the goddess of justice, fair judgements and the rights established by custom and law.
She was one of the three Horae, goddesses of the seasons, and keepers of the gates of heaven. Her sisters were Eunomia (Good Order) and Eirene (Peace). Like her siblings, she probably also represented an aspect of springtime growth.
One of her epithets was Astraea, referring to her appearance as the constellation Virgo.
