"sacrifice to the goddess Nemesis"
In Greek mythology, Nemesis, also called Rhamnousia, was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods). The name Nemesis
derives from the Greek némein
, meaning "to give what is due," i.e. the distributor of fortune according to what was deserved. In time nemesis
came to suggest the resentment caused by any disturbance of this right proportion, the sense of justice which could not allow it to pass unpunished. Nemesis was sometimes called "Adrasteia", meaning "one from whom there is no escape."
