Demeter (De-me-ter) – She was the Olympian goddess of agriculture, grain, and the bread that sustained mankind with the earth’s rich bounty. Demeter was often depicted wearing a crown and bearing sheafs of wheat or a cornucopia, and a torch.
Her daughter Persephone was abducted by the god of the underworld, Hades. Demeter endlessly searched for her beloved daughter, preoccupied with loss and grief Demeter let the seasons halt and living things stopped growing and died. At this point, Zeus had to intervene and sent his messenger, Hermes, to the underworld to bring Persephone back and prevent the extinction of all life on Earth.
Hades agreed to Persephone’s relief but gave her a pomegranate as she left. If you eat food from the underworld you must stay in the underworld. Distracted Persephone ate the seeds and was bound to Hades for one third of the year, either the dry Mediterranean summer, when plant life is threatened by drought, or the autumn and winter.
