Artemis was a very important Goddess for the ancient Greeks. She used to be called "Potnia Theron" during the stone ages and was renamed to Artemis during the bronze age. She was the Goddess of hunting and the protector of young animals and nature. So it's Sanctuaries were always built in areas of great natural beauty and good hunting grounds.... More
