Why Eirene?: The inspiration for the database name comes from Greek mythology where Eirene represents the personification of peace. Her name comes from the “Koinè eiréne” or common peace which were the peace treaties to which all Greek city-states adhered. She is often depicted with a scepter and cornucopia as a reminder of the causality between peace and abundance. Her scepter represents the role of building and safeguarding peace as a guiding principle of governance.
