Eirene was the goddess of peace and the season of spring.
Residence: Mount Olympus
Parents: Zeus and Themis
Siblings: The Horae and The Moirae
Roman equivalent: Pax
She was one of the three Horae, deities of the seasons and keepers of the gates of heaven. Her sisters were Eunomia (Good Order) and Dice (Justice).
Eirene’s name is the Greek word for peace (eirênê) but it is also closely connected with the word for spring (eiar, eiarinos). In ancient Greece late spring was the traditional campaign season, the time when peace was most at risk.
