From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Homonoia (Greek: Ὁμόνοια) was a minor goddess of concord, unanimity, and oneness of mind in classical Greek culture. [1] Her opposite number was Eris (Strife).[1]

She is associated with Praxidike the goddess of judicial punishment, the exacter of vengeance. Praxidike's daughters were Arete (a goddess personifying virtue) and Harmonia (the very spirit of concord). As such Homonoia was probably closely identified with the Theban Goddess-Queen Harmonia .
