A euphemistic term for the creatures known Erinyes, Dirae or Furies. The name Eumenides translates as ‘Kindly Ones’ or ‘Good-tempered Ones’. They were avenging female monsters of supernatural power. They had black skin, the head of a dog and hair made from live snakes. Their hands were entwined with snakes and had bat-like wings. Their breath stunk and they terrified the people of Greece.
