Description

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In Greek mythology, Callisto (Greek: ) was a nymph of Artemis. Transformed into a bear and set among the stars, she was the bear-mother of the Arcadians, through her son Arcas. As a follower of Artemis, Callisto, who Hesiod said was the daughter of Lycaon, king of Arcadia,[took a vow to remain a virgin, as did all the nymphs of Artemis. But to have her, Zeus disguised himself, Ovid says, as Artemis/Diana herself, in order to lure her into his embrace and rape her.Either Artemis "slew Kallisto with a shot of her silver bow," perhaps urged by the wrath of Hera, or, later, Arcas, the eponym of Arcadia, nearly killed his bear-mother, when she had wandered into the forbidden precinct of Zeus. In every case, Zeus placed them both in the sky as the constellations Ursa Major, called Arktos ( ), the "Bear", by Greeks, and Ursa Minor.
