Dysnomia was the spirit of lawlessness in Greek mythology, daughter of the goddess of strife, Eris. She had numerous siblings, including Horcus, Ponos, Algea, the Hysminai, the Makhai, the Phonoi, the Androktasiai, the Neikea, the Pseudologoi, the Amphilogiai, Limos, Ate, and Lethe. They were all personifications of wrong doings or negative situations, such as pain, fights, murder, lies and forgetfulness. Along with her sister Ate (ruin), they appeared side by side in some texts and myths. In one of the accounts, Dysnomia is juxtaposed to Eunomia, spirit of order and law.
