The Hysminai[pronunciation?] (Ancient Greek: ὑσμῖναι; singular: ὑσμίνη hysmine "battle, conflict, combat") are figures in Greek mythology. Descendants of Eris, they are personifications of battle. Quintus Smyrnaeus wrote of them in Book V of the Fall of Troy in a passage translated by Arthur Way:
Around them hovered the relentless Fates;
Beside them Battle incarnate onward pressed
Yelling, and from their limbs streamed blood and sweat.
