or Aisa (/ˈætrəpɒs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄτροπος “without turn”), in Greek mythology, was one of the three Moirai, goddesses of fate and destiny. Her Roman equivalent was Morta. Atropos was the oldest of the Three Fates, the others being Clotho and Lachesis. Atropos’s name (meaning “unalterable” or “inflexible”) indicates her function, that of rendering the decisions of her sisters irreversible or immutable. Atropos is most frequently represented with scales, a sundial, or a cutting instrument. While Clotho spun the thread and Lachesis measured the length, Atropos chose the manner of death and ended the life of mortals by cutting their thread.
