shanxi Posted July 5, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted July 5, 2022 (edited) Artemis is probably the must busy goddess. She is the goddess of the forest, childbirth, the moon (if Selene is in holidays ?) and of hunting, as well as the guardian of women and children. She is one of the twelve great Olympian gods, daughter of Zeus and Leto and twin sister of Apollo. Later she changed her name to Diana. Please post your coins of Artemis or Diana !
