A daughter of Agamemnon, whom the goddess Artemis demanded of the king as sacrifice, in recompense for his having slain one of her sacred stags. Agamemnon, wracked with grief, nevertheless could not gainsay the fierce goddess, and so he sent for his daughter to be brought to Aulis, ostensibly to marry Achilles. When she had arrived, Agamemnon made to sacrifice her, but Artemis, satisfied that he had obeyed her, appeared and carried the girl off, setting her to tend her temple in Taurus. It was in her office here that she later aided her brother Orestes, in his efforts to escape the Erinys, by taking from the temple am image of Apollo and returning with it to Greece.
