She was originally worshipped on the mountain Tifata near Capua and in sacred forests such as Aricia, near Lake Nemi, where she was also called Diana Nemorensis (Diana of the Woods). There was a festival held in her honor on the 13th of August (the Ides of August). Her priest lived in Aricia, and if a man was able to kill him with a bough broken from a tree in this forest, he would become priest himself. Later she was given a temple in the working-class area on the Aventine Hill where she was mainly worshipped by the plebeians and the slaves, of whom she was the patroness. Slaves could also ask for asylum in her temple. Diana was originally a goddess of fertility and she was worshipped mainly by women as the giver of fertility and easy births. Under Greek influence she was equated with Artemis and assumed many of her aspects. Her name is possibly derived from 'diviana' ("the shining one"). She is portrayed as a huntress accompanied by a deer. Diana was also the goddess of the Latin commonwealth.
The goddess of the hunt, forests, and virginity, Artemis was one of the most widely revered goddesses of ancient Greece. She was said to have been born first of the divine twins, immediately aiding her mother in the birth of Apollo, and for this reason she is often viewed as a goddess of fertility and childbirth. She was one of only three who were impervious to Aphrodite's power, the other two being Athena and Hestia.
