HERE'S WHAT I FOUND ABOUT THE GODDESS DIANA THE HUNTRESS:
In Roman mythology, Diana (lt. "heavenly" or "divine") was the goddess of the hunt and moon and birthing,
being associated with wild animals and woodland, and having the power
to talk to and control animals. She was equated with the Greek goddess Artemis, though she had an independent origin in Italy. Diana was worshiped in ancient Roman religion and is revered in Roman Neopaganism and Stregheria.
Dianic Wicca, a largely feminist form of the practice, is named for
her. Diana was known to be the virgin goddess and women. She was one of
the three maiden goddesses, Diana, Minerva and Vesta, who swore never to
Oak groves were especially sacred to her. According to mythology, Diana was born with her twin brother Apollo on the island of Delos, daughter of Jupiter and Latona. Diana made up a triad with two other Roman deities: Egeria the water nymph, her servant and assistant midwife; and Virbius, the woodland god.
