The Gods and Spirits of Lithuania

MEDEINA

Lithuanian Nature Goddess

Also known as Medeinė, Medeine, MEIDEIN, MEIDENE, Žvorūna, Žvorūnė, Zvoruna

Hunting Goddess of the Forest

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

Her mascot and sacred animal 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?
