  6. How Artemis Became a Goddess • When Artemis was a girl she asked Zeus for divine privileges and set out to gather the items she would use to hunt • She asked for several handmaidens (“…sixty daughters of Okeanos for my choir…” and “…twenty NymphaiAmnisides [of the Amnisos River in Krete] who shall tend well my buskins…”)

  7. Artemis Receives Her Bow • "And straightway she went to visit the Kyklopes. Them she found in the isle of Lipara - Lipara in later days, but at the time its name was Meligounis - at the anvils of Hephaistos, standing round a molten mass of iron. For a great work was being hastened on: they fashioned a horse-trough for Poseidon. And the Nymphai were affrighted when they saw the terrible monsters like unto the crags of Ossa: all had single eyes beneath their brows, like a shield of fourfold hide for size, glaring terribly from under; and when they heard the din of the anvil echoing loudly, and the great blast of the bellows and the heavy groaning of the Kyklopes themselves. For Aitna cried aloud, and Trinakia cried, the seat of the Sikanians (Sicilians), cried too their neighbour Italia, and Kyrnos therewithal uttered a mighty noise, when they lifted their hammers above their shoulders and smote with rhythmic swing the bronze glowing from the furnace or iron, labouring greatly.

  8. Wherefore the Okeaninai (daughters of Okeanos) could not untroubled look upon them face to face nor endure the din in their ears. No shame to them! On those not even the daughters of the Blessed look without shuddering. Though long past childhood’s years ... But thou, Maiden [Artemis], even earlier, while yet but three years old, when Leto came bearing thee in her arms at the bidding of Hephaistos that he might give thee handsel [gifts for the new-born] and [the Kyklops] Brontes set thee on his stout knees - thou didst pluck the shaggy hair of his great breast and tear it out by force. And even unto this day the mid part of his breast remains hairless, even when mange settles on a man’s temples and eats the hair away.
Therefore right boldly didst thou address them then: ‘Kyklopes, for me too fashion ye a Kydonian [of the style of Kydos in Krete] bow and arrows and a hollow casket for my shafts; for I also am a child of Leto, even as Apollon. And if I with my bow shall slay some wild creature or monstrous beast, that shall the Kyklopes eat.’ So didst thou speak and they fulfilled thy words. Straightway dist thou array thee, O Goddess.

  9. After receiving her bow from the Cyclopes she visited Pan to acquire her hunting dogs • Captured three golden horned deer for her chariot • Then practiced with her newfound items her powers and rose to Olympus
