Nomos or Nomoi may refer to:

  • the Greek term for "law" (Template:Lang, nómoi). It is the origin of the suffix -onomy, as in astronomy, economy, or taxonomy.
    • custom, traditional social norm, the equivalent of Latin Mores
    • Nomos (mythology), "the spirit of law" in Greek mythology
    • Nomos (sociology), "meaningful orders or worldviews of individuals" in Peter L. Berger's sociology of religion
  • the Greek νομός, meaning "pasture, field; division, distribution; district, province"

-- The nouns nómos and nomós both derive from the verb νέμω, némō, to dispense or to allot, with nomós being the result of allotment and nómos being the manner of allotment or dispensing (justice).
