Eumenides

leave a comment »

Scholars believe that when the  Furies were originally referred to as the Eumenides (the “kindly ones”) it was not to reference their good sides but as a euphemism to avoid their wrath. I propose that it might be just for the fact that those meaning well usually do as desastrous damage as Erinyes would.
