She may not be one of the more well-known Greek goddesses, but Eirene still has a pretty important role to play. Not only was she the personification of peace, but Eirene was part of the Horae – a group of sisters who controlled the seasons and were considered the goddesses of justice and order.
Unlike the anger-inducing, confusion-causing Fruit of the Loom logo, Eirene really is depicted with a cornucopia – as well as a sceptre and a torch. Although the original statue of Eirene erected in Athens (after the victory against the Spartans) was destroyed, another was made from marble depicting Eirene holding Ploutos (the god of wealth). The statue symbolises that prosperity arrives when there is peace, and can be observed at the Glyptothek museum in Munich.
