Eris at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Ancient Greek personification of strife. Her Roman counterpart was Discordia. The daughter of Nyx and the sister of Ares, she was best known for her role in starting the Trojan War. When she alone was not invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, she threw down among the guests a golden apple inscribed "for the most beautiful." Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite each claimed it, and Zeus assigned the task of judging to the Trojan Paris. He awarded the apple to Aphrodite, who in turn helped him carry off the beautiful Helen, an act that triggered war.

eris at English => English (Computer) Of Explained:

Eris

/e'ris/ The Greek goddess of Chaos, Discord, Confusion, and
Things You Know Not Of; her name was latinised to Discordia
and she was worshiped by that name in Rome. Not a very
friendly deity in the Classical original, she was reinvented
as a more benign personification of creative anarchy starting
in 1959 by the adherents of {Discordianism} and has since been
a semi-serious subject of veneration in several "fringe"
cultures, including hackerdom.

See {Church of the SubGenius}.
