Pheme was the goddess of fame in Greek mythology; the people she favoured were notable and renowned, while those who defied her were scorned and plagued by rumours. She was the daughter of Gaea or Elpis. It was said that Pheme would learn the affairs of mortals and immortals; then, she would start by whispering them to a few people, but her voice became gradually louder, until everyone knew. She was usually depicted winged and holding a trumpet.
