Artémis (Ӑριεµιϛ), filha de Zeus e Leto, irmã gémea de Apolo, recebeu de seu pai um arco com flechas de prata. Esteve inicialmente ligada à vida selvagem e à caça. Depois associaram-na ao luar e à magia. Consideravam o seu templo em Éfeso como uma das sete maravilhas do mundo antigo. Em Roma deram-lhe o nome de Diana e confundiam-na com Selene e Hécate, deusas da noite.
Artemis (Ӑριεμις), daughter of Zeus and Leto, twin sister of Apollo, received a bow with silver arrows from her father. Initially she was linked to wildlife and hunting. Then she was associated with the moonlight and magic. Her temple in Ephesus was regarded as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. In Rome she was named Diana, and she was often mistaken for Selene and Hecate, goddesses of the night.
