Nemesis (in Greek, νεμεσις), also called Rhamnousia/Rhamnusia ("the Goddess of Rhamnous"), at her sanctuary at Rhamnous, north of Marathon, in Greek mythology was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris, vengeful fate personified as a remorseless goddess. The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word νείμειν, meaning "to give what is due". The Romans equated the Greek Nemesis as Invidia (Aronoff 2003). Her associate and sometimes sister, is Tyche. One of her attendants is Poena, the personification of pain.
