Diana

The goddess Diana (in Greek, Artemis) is most often referred to and represented as a chaste huntress.

She was associated with the goddess of the moon, Luna, and as a result is often depicted wearing a crescent moon. Her other attributes include a bow, quiver, spear, dogs and a stag, as well as a shield and a chariot.

She was the daughter of Jupiter and Latona and twin sister of Apollo.
