24 Themis

This minor planet is named after the Greek titaness who represented order, tradition, and divine law. She is a seer and of temperate heart; not to be confused with Dike, personification of justice, and sometimes her daughter.

The symbol is a simple glyph of a sword and scales, items which this asteroid's namesake carries in virtually every statue depicting her.
