Nomos or Nomoi may refer to:

  • from the Greek term for "law" (νόμος, nómos; pl. νόμοι, nómoi). It is the origin of the suffix -onomy, as in astronomy, economy, or taxonomy.
  • from the Greek νομός, meaning "pasture, field; division, distribution; district, province"

-- The nouns nómos and nomós both derive from the verb νέμω, némō, to dispense or to allot, with nomós being the result of allotment and nómos being the manner of allotment or dispensing (justice).

Also used in numismatics to refer to ancient coins Nomisma.
