BALTIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Lithuania, Latvia & Prussia...

MEDEINA

Baltic Nature Goddess

Also known as MEIDEIN, MEIDENE, ZVORUNA, ŽVORŪNA

Hunting Goddess of the Forest

She is an ARTEMIS-like figure, a formidable hunting goddess accompanied by wolves.

Her mascot is a bounding hare. She leaps through Lithuania and even into Poland and elsewhere.

She is apparently single but we have Grove God GIRAITIS listed as her lover. Casual fling?
