                                                    In Greek mythology, Tyche was the goddess of of fortune, chance, providence and fate. Tyche was described as the daughter of Oceanus and Terthys, or of Aphrodite and  Zeus or Hermes, or of Prometheus.

                                                     According to Greek mythology, when no cause can be discovered to events such as floods, droughts, frosts or even in politics, then the cause of these events may be fairly attributed to Tyche. In some versions,Tyche was described as one of the Moirai, and the most powerful of the sisters.

                                   In Greek mythology, gold, repute, health, strength, beauty, and all other gifts of Fortune, need to be commanded by a man's intelligence. For through his intelligence, or in other version, his moral purpose, he becomes able to make good use of all gifts, without depending on them. And without intelligence, gold, repute, beauty, and other wonderful gifts of Tyche, may act like poison and destroy a man or a woman.
In some versions, Plutus, the god of wealth, was described as Tyche' son. Tyche appeared on many coins of the Hellenistic period, after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC.
