Demeter (Δημήτηρ) → Demeter, identified with the Roman goddess Ceres, is the goddess of the harvest, who presided over grains and the fertility of the earth. She presided also over the sanctity of marriage, the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death. “Goddess of seed, of fruits abundant, fair, Harvest and threshing, are thy constant care; Who dwell'st in Eleusina's seats retir'd, Lovely, delightful queen, by all desir'd”.
