Neikea

In Greek mythology, the Neikea[pronunciation?] (Greek: Νείκεα; singular: Νεῖκος Neikos "quarrels") were spirits of arguments. Hesiod's Theogony identifies them as children of Eris (strife) through parthenogenesis and siblings of Ponos ("Hardship"), Lethe ("Forgetfulness"), Limos ("Starvation"), Algae ("Pains"), Hysminai ("Battles"), Makhai ("Wars"), Phonoi ("Murders"), Androktasiai (Manslaughters"), Pseudea ("Lies"), Logoi ("Stories"), Amphillogiai ("Disputes"), Dysnomia ("Anarchy"), Ate ("Ruin"), and Horkos ("Oath").[1]
