August 2nd, 2010 by sabrina

Aidos (pronounced AY-dose) is the Greek Goddess of modesty. She is the daughter of Prometheus, the Titan God of planning, and she acted as a conscience, to keep men from doing wrong. Aidos was often in the company of Nemesis, Goddess of retribution, who would punish those who failed to heed the guidance of Aidos. Her name, which means “modesty,” is also seen as Aedos, and she was also called Aiskhyne or Aischyne, which means “shame.”
