This chapter examines the speculation that moira is a precursor to the semantic field of ‘fate’ and possibly so in some relation to nemein (including in the sense of an allotment of portions); as well as the relation between moira and nemein, more generally. The focus in this chapter remains within the Homeric uses, though not exclusively, and with regard also to death, birth and the practice of weaving.
