This is the first non-useless "Roman equivalent" treatment I've seen. Good stuff. Bacchiad 06:35, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)
- I hope you don't think I've ever inserted any "Roman equivalents". They're all misleading and should have appropriate caveats. Thanks. Wetman 07:26, 15 Jul 2004 (UTC)
I'm very confused by the first sentence of this article: "among the six brothers and six sisters of whom Cronos made one". "Made one" what? Was Cronos one of some group of twelve offspring, i.e., Themis's brother? But then why is Cronos, as only one of the twelve brothers, being mentioned at all? I think that rephrasing the first sentence to be clearer would help a lot, but I'm not sure of the factual information. -- Creidieki 06:23, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)
- That was my gaffe, I think. I've fixed it like this: "In Greek mythology, Hesiod mentions Themis among the six brothers and six sisters— of whom Cronos was one— all of them the children of Gaia with Ouranos, that is, of Earth with Sky. " That's clearer, isn't it? --Wetman 08:25, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)
"Themis is sometimes identified with Physis (Nature personified)." I moved this here. Without saying who made the identification, it is meaningless and distracting. In Roman terms this would be a confusion between Justitia and Natura: most unlikely. It sounds like a student's confusion. --Wetman 22:48, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
Themis and Drasteia
The article says:
"The name of Themis might be substituted for Adrasteia in telling of the birth of Zeus on Crete."
This is news to me. As far as I know Adrasteia is a completely seperate character from Greek myth, unrelated to Themis. Adrasteia was not even a Titan, she was a nymph on Mount Ida, Crete, who along with Ida was given the infant Zeus to raise. Themis became Zeus's consort, she was never his nurse. What evidence is there that Themis and Adrasteia can be substituted for each other? Unless a source is provided to support this statement it should be removed.
