Themis was the wise and honest daughter of Uranos and Gaea. She was the goddess responsible for unholding right in human affairs. The scales in her left hand represented fairness. The sword and chain in her right hand were a symbols of severely enforced justice. Even Zeus trusted Themis' advice. She was also known as Urania.
