  1. Artemis and Cynthia are two names for one goddess, who was Apollo's sister. Artemis was also called Selene when she acted as the moon goddess. According to Greek mythology, Artemis was served by a band of nymphs. One day King Cadmus of Thebes' grandson, Actaeon, was out hunting when he stumbled upon the group bathing in a pool in a forest. Artemis got so angry at being seen bathing that she turned Actaeon into a stag, which was attacked by his hounds.
