Tisiphone, or Tilphousia, was one of the Erinyes or Furies, and sister of Alecto and Megaera. She was the one who punished crimes of murder: parricide, fratricide and homicide. In Book VI of Virgil‘s Aeneid, she is described as the guardian of the gates of Tartarus, ‘clothed in a blood-wet dress’.[1] According to one myth, she fell in love with a mortal, Cithaeron, but was spurned; in her anger she formed a poisonous snake from her hair, which bit and killed him.

Between 1779 and 1816 there was a British navy fireship (later converted to a sloop) named after the goddess.[2]
