      Greek Mythology: Astraia (or Astraea) was the virgin-goddess of justice. During the Golden Age she dwelt upon the earth with mankind, but was driven away by the lawlessness of the later Bronze Age. Zeus then placed her amongst the stars as the constellation Virgo. She was closely identified with Dike, the goddess of justice, and with Nemesis, the goddess of rightful indignation.

    Steles of Tiya, Ethiopia, south of Addis Ababa. The site contains 36 monuments, including 32 carved stelae covered with (sometimes enigmatic) symbols, especially swords. According to Joussaume (1995), who led archaeological work at Tiya, the site is relatively recent, dated to a period between the 11th and 13th centuries CE. Later dating places them some time between the 10th and 15th centuries CE. However, the building of megaliths in Ethiopia is a very ancient tradition.
