Translation of Knossos tablet KN 390 J ERINU 360
This is no idle speculation. If indeed the Minoan Snake Goddess is one and the same as ERINU, which is entirely feasible, given that she is after all a snake goddess, wielding not one, but two snakes, then we may at long last have at least a handle on who in fact was the Snake Goddess, none other than the frightening spectre of Erinu. This is all the more striking, as the word Erinys lasts almost unchanged from Mycenaean Greek down to Classical Athens, where in the plural, the goddess mutates into the Eumenides, the Furies or avenging deities. Nothing could be fiercer than those rough-and-tumble “ladies”, whom the Greeks justly feared in their concept of Moira or Fate.

If this is true, then this particular tablet is of great significance to the Minoan religion.

Erinu or Erinys or Erinyes

They are the three goddesses of vengeance: Tisiphone (avenger of murder), Megaera (the jealous) and Alecto (constant anger). They were also known as the daughters of the night but were actually the daughters of Uranus and Gaea. Notice in particular the snakes in their hair, hence the clear association I have made with the Minoan Snake goddess (Click to ENLARGE Eumenides & Minoan Snake Goddess):
