Demeter is the goddess of the harvest and agriculture, presiding over grains and the fertility of the earth. She is also called Deo.
Her cult titles include Sito, “she of the Grain”, as the giver of food or grain, and Thesmophoros, “giver of customs” or “legislator”, in association with the secret female-only festival called the Thesmophoria.
Though Demeter is often described simply as the goddess of the harvest, she presided also over the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death. She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries, a religious tradition that predated the Olympian pantheon, and which may have its roots in the Mycenaean period c. 1400–1200 BC. One of the most notable Homeric Hymns, the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, tells the story of Persephone’s abduction by Hades and Demeter’s search for her.
