|Noun||1.||Eris - (Greek mythology) goddess of discord; sister of Ares|
|Eris - /e'ris/ The Greek goddess of Chaos, Discord, Confusion, and
Things You Know Not Of; her name was latinised to Discordia
and she was worshiped by that name in Rome. Not a very
friendly deity in the Classical original, she was reinvented
as a more benign personification of creative anarchy starting
in 1959 by the adherents of Discordianism and has since been
a semi-serious subject of veneration in several "fringe"
cultures, including hackerdom.|
