Virgin goddess of the hunt, wilderness, wild animals, childbirth and plague. In later times she became rear endociated with the moon. She is the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and twin sister of Apollo. In art she was usually depicted as a young woman dressed in a short knee-length chiton and equipped with a hunting bow and a quiver of arrows. In addition to the bow, her attributes include hunting spears, animal pelts, deer and other wild animals. Her sacred animals are deer, bears, and wild boars.

The meaning of Artemis is not certain. It may be from 'artemes' (strong-limbed), or 'artao' (I cut up) - the Spartans called her Artamis. Or her name may be from 'airo themis' (lofty convenor, or lofty water). Artemis was the ancient Greek goddess of the hunt. Twin to Apollo, Artemis was a patron of virgins and hunters. She is therefore both butcher and protectress, though it is uncertain whether either of these words truly contribute to her name. In later legend, she was conflated with Diana, Roman goddess of the moon. She is also known as Phoebe (related to Apollo's pillowle "Phoebus) and Cynthia (as she was born on Mount Cynthus).
I love Artemis! She's my fave greek godess.
She also has a bad side to her. Look up stories on her where she releases her rath on disrespectful people.
