Ioke Mythology

In Greek mythology, Ioke (; Ancient Greek: ?) is the female personification of onslaught, battle-tumult, and pursuit. In the Iliad, she is one of the daimones, or spirits, of Zeus's aegis. The other daimones are Phobos, Eris, and Alke.[1]

The ancient Greek word ? is a rare doublet for "rout, pursuit" from the common verb "drive, pursue, chase away".[2]
