Alke is the Greek Goddess of strength in battle. She may have been a daughter of Rhea, or the Phrygian Goddess Kybele who became identified with Rhea. She is one of the personifications who are shown on Athena’s shield, along with Eris (strife), Ioke (onslaught), and Phobos (terror). Alke’s name, which means “strength,” is also seen as Alce.
