In her left hand is a sprig of laurel - in Greek mythology, Apollo's sacred tree - and in the other hand a bowl meant to hold some of the water from the stream containing the vision-inducing gases.

In Greek mythology, Atropos was one of the three Moirae, the Fates, the female deities who supervised fate. Atropos was the fate who cut the thread or web of life with the "abhorred shears." She worked along with Clotho, who spun the thread, and Lachesis, who measured the length. They were the daughters of Zeus and Themis, the goddess of order. The Roman names of the fates are Nona, Decuma, and Morta.
