Artemis (Latin Diana) is one of the oldest, most complex and most interesting forms of the Greek pantheon.

Daughter of Zeus and Leto, twin sister of Apollo, queen of mountains and forests, goddess of hunting, protector of small children and animals.

According to legend, when Artemis was still young, she saw five deer grazing in the Thessalian plain.

Blurred by their beauty, she grabbed the four and put them in her chariot.

The fifth, however, who had golden horns and ran very fast, managed to escape.

He headed south and after days, after crossing the Peloponnese, he was convinced that he had escaped and settled permanently on Mount Kyrenia, on the border between Arcadia and Achaia.

Then Artemis, admiring her free and unruly character, put the animal under her protection.
