Definitions for "GRACES"
Three beautiful goddesses, Aglaia, Thalia and Euphrosyne, who attended upon Venus, serving without salary. They were at no expense for board and clothing, for they ate nothing to speak of and dressed according to the weather, wearing whatever breeze happened to be blowing.
Motions put forward for decision by the Regent House (or very occasionally the Senate), normally by the Council. They may either be approved without dissent if no opposition is raised within ten days. A ballot of the Regent House on a Grace takes place if requested by the Council or 25 members of the Regent House.
