Demeter, the Greek goddess of agriculture and fertility, once assumed the guise of a Fury due to the god Poseidon's actions. This event was memorized as a monument on top of a hill in the Forest of Soron in Arkadia.
During the 5th century BCE, a shipwreck located within the Korinthian Gulf bore the name of one of the Furies: Alekto. The Erinyes were also used to explain The Octopus, a member of the Gods of the Aegean Sea branch of the Cult of Kosmos; according to a tale, she was a captain whom the Erinyes slew, after which she was resurrected in her new form.
- The term comes from Ancient Greek Ἐρῑνύες (Erinúes), which means 'Avengers'. Colloquially the name used tends to be Furies.
- According to the myths, the Furies are older than the Olympians, since they were born from the spilled blood of Uranus.
