As the daughter of Cronus and Rhea, Demeter was known as the mother or giver of food and barely. She was responsible for the fertility of the Earth. With her brother Zeus, she gave birth to Persephone whose abduction by Hades is probably the most well known myth she is associated with. Demeter was depicted as a mature woman crowned, holding a sheaf of wheat and a torch.

Myths associated with the goddess include:
-The abduction of her daughter Persephone by Hades and Demeter's subsequent famine of the earth
-The journeys of Triptolemos, a hero sent by the goddess to instruct mankind in agriculture
-The punishment of Erysikhthon who was cursed with an unquenchable hunger by the goddess for cutting down her holy grove.
-The nursing of Demophoon, the young son of King Keleus of Eleusis
