Eris (Greek Ἔρις, "Strife") is the Greek goddess of discord and strife, her name being translated into Latin as Discordia. In my picture she's holding the golden apple. An apple of discord is a reference to the Golden Apple of Discord which, according to Greek mythology, the goddess Eris said that she would give "to the fairest" at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, sparking a vanity-fueled dispute between Hera, Athena and Aphrodite that eventually led to the Trojan War. Thus, "apple of discord" became a euphemism for the core, kernel, or crux of an argument, or for a small matter that could lead to a bigger dispute.

Demeter was the goddess of growing plants. Together, Demeter and Dionsyus were considered gods of the harvest. She is the cause of the seasons. This happened when Hades stole Demeter's daughter, Persephone, to marry her. While Persephone was gone, winter lasted for a year because Demeter was mourning. When Persephone was in the underworld, she ate six pomegranite seeds. She could only go back to her mother six months out of the year because of this. While Persephone is gone, Demeter mourns and winter comes. (5 years and 1917 days ago)
