DESCRIPTION

Detail of Astrape (Lightning) from a painting depicting the throne of Zeus.

Astrape, the goddess of lightning, is winged, crowned with a shining aureole, and holds a flaming torch and lightning-bolt in her hands. She was perhaps equated with Astraea-Dike, goddess of justice and of the constellation Virgo, for her attributes resemble those of a star-god (cf. image T19.12).
