Long Description:
V recké mytologii byla Artemis / Diana dcera Jupitera a Létó. Narodila se soucasne se svým bratrem Apollónem na ostrove Délu a spolu s vodní nymfou Egerií a s bohyní lesu Viribus se zaprisáhla, že zustane pannou. V pozdejší rímské dobe se nekdy nazývala dea trivia (= trojcestná) a zobrazovala jako tri postavy. Mezi mnoha mýty je asi nejznámejší povest o lovci Acteonovi, který ji spatril pri koupání nahou; Diana ho promenila v jelena a jeho vlastní psi ho roztrhali.

===========================================

In Roman mythology, Diana (lt. "heavenly" or "divine") was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and birthing, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and having the power to talk to and control animals. She was equated with the Greek goddess Artemis,though she had an independent origin in Italy. Diana was worshipped in ancient Roman religion and is revered in Roman Neopaganism and Stregheria. Dianic Wicca, a largely feminist form of the practice, is named for her. Diana was known to be the virgin goddess of childbirth and women. She was one of the three maiden goddesses, Diana, Minerva and Vesta, who swore never to marry.
