Fun quiz. One quibble, I think Atlas actually was supposed to be holding up the sky/heavens, rather than the world itself. The globe he is often depicted holding is the celestial sphere, not the terrestrial globe (per Wikipedia). That said, it's still obvious who the clue is referring to, so no big deal.

Why "Furies" and not Erinyes? You seem to be using the proper Greek name in most other cases.

I agree I tried Erinyes many times because Furies is the Latin name not the Greek one...
