In Greek mythology, Eupraxia (Ancient Greek: Εὐπραξίας means 'good conduct') was the personification of well-being.

Mythology[edit]

According to Aeschylus, Eupraxia was the daughter of another two personifications, Peitharchia and Soter.[1]

"When you invoke the gods, do not be ill-advised. For Peitharkhia (Obedience) is the mother of Eupraxia (Success), wife of Soter (Salvation)--as the saying goes."[2]
