In the sacred caves and sacred mountains of the God Pan

Through the woods of Artemis, throughout the Peloponnese, bearing such epithets as Limnaea and Limnatis (Lady of the Lake), Artemis supervised waters and lush wild growth, attended by nymphs of wells and springs (naiads). In parts of the peninsula her dances were wild and lascivious.


Homer, Odyssey 6.102
"Far-shooting (iokheaira) Artemis ranges the mountainside - on lofty Taygetos, it may be, or it may be on Erymanthos - taking her pleasure among the boars and the running deer, Nymphai of the countryside (agronomoi), daughters of Zeus who holds the aigis, are all around her and share her pastime."

Aristophanes, Thesmophoriazusae 114 ff :
"Praise Artemis too, the maiden huntress, who wanders on the mountains and through the woods."

Ovid, Fasti 4. 751 ff (trans.Boyle) (Roman poetry C1st B.C. to C1st A.D.) :
"I entered a forbidden wood . . . forgive my offence . . . Keep from our sight the Dryades and Diana's [Artemis'] bath and Faunus [Pan] lying in the fields at noon."

Ovid, Metamorphoses 10. 535 ff (trans. Melville) (Roman epic C1st B.C. to C1st A.D.) :
"She roamed across the hills, through woods and brambly boulders, with her dress knee-high like Diana's [Artemis'], urging on the hounds, chasing the quarry when the quarry's safe - does and low-leaping hares and antlered deer."

*The Waterboys - the Pan within *
