In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was the twin sister of Apollo. Her Roman equivalent was Diana and she was the daughter of Zeus and Leto.
Not only was Artemis the goddess of the hunt, the moon and she was also known as the goddess of wild animals, wilderness, childbirth and virginity.
Artemis is almost universally depicted as a young, beautiful and vigorous huntress carrying a quiver with arrows and holding a bow, typically wearing a short knee-high tunic and often accompanied by some animal (stag, doe, or hunting dogs). As a moon goddess, she is sometimes represented wearing a long robe and a crescent moon crown.
