The Erinyes also act on the earth and were called on by those who had been wronged to come and take vengeance on murderers and oath-breakers. They could punish an individual by chasing him and driving him mad, and they could also punish a kingdom that harbored criminals by causing droughts and famine. The name Erinyes (singular Erinys) is derived from a Greek word meaning "I hunt up," and they were also known as THE PRAXIDIKAI ("exacters of justice"), THE POINAI ("the retributions"), THE MANIAI ("the madnesses"), THE ARAI ("the curses"), THE DASPL^eTAI ("the horrid ones"), THE AEI PARTHENOUS ("the eternal virgins"), and THE KYN^eS ENKOTOI ("the hounds of wrath"). Those who hoped to soothe them called them by euphemisms such as THE EUMENIDES ("the kindly ones"), THE SEMNAI ("the revered ones"), and THE MEILIKHIOI ("the mild ones").
