EUTHENIA was the goddess or personified spirit (daimona) of prosperity and abundance. She and her three sisters--Eukleia (Good Repute), Philophrosyne (Welcome) and Eupheme (Acclaim)--were probably the goddesses known collectively as the younger Kharites (Charites). Her opposite number was Penia (Poverty).
