Britomartis - Virgin Goddess of the Hunt

Britomartis ("sweet maiden", "sweet virgin") was the Minoan goddess of mountains and hunting and nets. She is also known as Diktynna ("Lady of the Nets") in Crete and as Aphaea ("without light") in Aegina. According to myths, whilst being persued by Minos, who had attempted to seduce, she threw herself in the sea to escape and was caught in the fishing nets.
