In Greek mythology, the Amphillogiai[pronunciation?] (Ancient Greek: Ἀμφιλλογίαι; singular: Amphillogia) were goddesses of disputes. Hesiod's Theogony identifies them as the daughters of Eris ("strife") and sisters of Ponos ("Hardship"), Lethe ("Forgetfulness"), Limos ("Starvation"), Algae ("Pains"), Hysminai ("Battles"), Makhai ("Wars"), Phonoi ("Murders"), Androktasiai (Manslaughters"), Neikea ("Quarrels"), Pseudea ("Lies"), Logoi ("Stories"), Dysnomia ("Anarchy"), Ate ("Ruin"), and Horkos ("Oath").[1]
