*)Astrai=a), a daughter of Zeus and Themis, or according to others, of Astraeus by Eos. During the golden age, this star-bright maiden lived on earth and among men, whom she blessed ; but when that age had passed away, Astraea, who tarried longest among men, withdrew, and was placed among the stars. (Hygin. Poct. Astr. 2.25 ; Eratost. Catast. 9; Ov. Mct. 1.149.)
