Notes: Artemis was the daughter of Zeus and Leto and twin brother to Apollo. She is the goddess of the hunt, fertility, chastity and wild animals and forests. She is usually depicted holding a bow and accompanied by lions, panthers, hinds and stags. Her worship was predominant in the Greek cities of Asia minor, most notably Ephesus, where her great temple was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
