Diana, the equivalent in Roman Mythology of the Greek Artemis (which see for more details).

Diana is the mother of wild animals and forests, and a moon goddess. Oak groves are especially sacred to her. She is praised for her strength, athletic grace, beauty and her hunting skills. With two other deities she made up a trinity: Egeria the water nymph, her servant and assistant midwife; and Virbius, the woodland god.

Diana is worshiped today by women practicing religion known as Dianic Wicca.
