Hey guys, I need help with a school project.

Here you can discuss all things Ancient Greek. Use this board to ask questions about grammar, discuss learning strategies, get help with a difficult passage of Greek, and more.

Do you guys know where I can find any Greek poems about the goddess Artemis? I looked on google but I didn't have much luck. All I got was English. It doesn't have to be a whole poem about her. If there's a descent sized passage about her in another poem that'll work. preferably something descriptive rather than a story about her. If you guys could help me out I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance :)

There are Homeric Hymns on Artemis, for on thing:
http://el.wikisource.org/wiki/Εις_Ά?τεμιν
http://el.wikisource.org/wiki/Εις_Ά?τεμιν_(2)

(Don't just click on the links above. Instead, copy and paste them each on the address bar of your browser.)

Or you could use Perseus Digital Library:

You can click over to English translation or refer to the word-to-word morphological analysis at Perseus site.

Cheers!
