Themis /ˈθiːmᵻs/ (Greek: Θέμις) is an ancient Greek Titaness. She is described as "of good counsel", and is the personification of divine order, law, natural law and custom. Themis means "divine law" rather than human ordinance, literally "that which is put in place", from the Greek verb títhēmi (τίθημι), meaning "to put". Her Roman name is Justitia. | ♔ Uℓviỿỿa S. ⚜
