Tyche

Tyche, the Greek Goddess of Fortune



Tyche was the Greek Goddess of Fortune, Chance and the non-predictable.




According to the Greek poet Hesiod, Goddess Tyche was a daughter of the Sea Titans Oceanus and Tethys.




Goddess Tyche was the personification of hope, happiness, and wealth. She was an unstable but virtuous spirit who mediated between gods and mortals and guided human lives. Therefore, she was extraordinarily revered by the ancient Greeks.




The main symbol of the goddess Tyche was a huge horn in which she kept all wealth; the horn once belonged to Amalthea, the goat who nursed the Greek god Zeus during his childhood. Tyche carried the horn with her at all times, occasionally turning it upside down to distribute all her goods to anyone she met along the way.
