Ancient Greek Festival for Artemis Calliste

Artemis is known for many things. Just to name a few…

One, for being the Patroness of music. Two, for being the virgin daughter of Latona and Zeus, and twin to Apollo. Three, for being a Goddess of the Night carrying with her a bow and arrows. With these, she hunts the monsters of Darkness and brings about the sudden death of all those who are wicked. Four, for having a Temple in Ephesus and that temple being one of the seven wonders of the Ancient World. Pretty impressive isn’t she?

Ull is the son of Sif. He is the God of the bow & hunting. he also protects and strengthens the shield of the Warrior. When Odin is absent, Ull has been known to rule in his place.
