Artemis and her twin Apollo were the children of Zeus and Leto. A confirmed virgin, Artemis inhabited the woodland areas with her followers, hunting wild animals and scrupulously avoiding male company. She can be seen with her hunting-dog at her side, and the symbol most often associated with her is the stag, a possible association with the myth of Actaeon. At Ephesus the Artemesion, a huge temple complex whose initial construction dated back to the Bronze Age, and which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, was her major cultic shrine.
