In Roman mythology, Diana was goddess of the hunt as well as of the moon. Along with Minerva and Vesta, she was one of the three maiden goddesses, and a symbol of chastity.

In Greek mythology, her equivalent was Artemis, who was goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and young girls.
