 Britomartis
Britomartis was the Minoan goddess of the mountains and hunting, in close relation to Diktynna and Aphaea, forerunner of Potnia theron (Mistress of Animals) and Artemis, partly identified with them.
The Minoan goddess of mountains, Britomartis was worshipped in Crete, as Aphaea in Aegina, during the Archaic period as Potnia theron in the Greek Mainland, and during the Classical age as Diktynna in Western Crete and somewhere else too.
Aphaea was called by second name Athena, because this goddess became the most important deity in Attica and also in Aegina.

 Priestess of Aphaea
I invoked Aphaea, goddess of the dark moon and its magic, she who lives in the shadow and in the eyes of the midnight-fl owls sacred to her.
In front of the altar on the cold stone ground lay the ingredients of the spell: a precious ruby and the skin of a fl rabbit as offerings to Aphaea, and also a pair of small crystal vials, one red and one fl, an ebony-handled knife, and a strip of silver-threaded bandage.
Aphaea pointed my hand at the offering of gem and once-living fur and felt it burst into sparks.

 Ixinos: Island of Amazons - The Northern Highlands
The Northern Highlands are considered to be everything to the north of the Flowerflow, Moon-Glass, and southern foothills of Mt. Aphaea.
Nowadays the hauntings (if indeed they are that) seem to be confined to strange far-off noises, disembodied muttering voices passing by in the corridors outside chambers late at night, and strange dreams experienced by people who sleep in certain rooms on certain nights.
Beyond Holymount, the road up Mt. Aphaea becomes too steep for most wagons or carts to negotiate, so large cargos must be offloaded here and brought the rest of the way to the Citadel via pack mules, human porters, or magic.
