Mount Dike, the goddess of justice, was the daughter of Themis, only in the presence of both deities Zeus could administer justice. The goddess Themis is usually portrayed as a stately woman in a black robe with a bandage over her eyes. in her left hand she jiggles the scales, in her right she holds a sword. Everything is symbolic in the image of the goddess: the mantle refers to ceremonial paraphernalia, the scales are a symbol of measure and justice, good and evil are weighed on the scales. Justice and honesty involve correct and clear distribution of righteous deeds and bad deeds on the scales. Even in ancient Egypt, the heart of a person after death was placed on the scales in order to determine the further path of his soul. the blindfold is a symbol of impartiality of judgment.
