Artemis Pergeia, a pre-hellenic goddess, called in Pampylian dialect Vanassa Preiia, was one of the most important deities in the eastern Mediterranean. Its cult statue is known only from coins. The statue was hidden in a gold covered shrine. Ca 80 BC it was looted by the notorious Verres, Quaestor of Cilicia. M.T. Cicero included it in his inquiry after Verres' misdeeds in 79 BC (see Cicero 'In C. Verrem'). No remnants of the famous temple have been found.
