In Greek mythology, the Androktasiai (Greek: Ἀνδροκτασίαι; singular: Androktasia) were the female personifications of manslaughter.

Hesiod in Theogony names their mother as Eris and their siblings as Lethe ("forgetfulness"), Ponos ("toil"), Limos ("starvation"), the Algea ("pains"), the Hysminai ("fightings"), the Makhai ("battles"), the Phonoi ("murders"), the Neikea ("quarrels"), the Pseudologoi ("lies"), the Amphilogiai ("disputes"), Dysnomia ("lawlessness"), Atë ("ruin"), and Horkos ("oath").[1]
