          This one, it doesn't look right to me. Isis is a much bigger god
      than Artemis, in fact I can't think of any Greek goddess who seems
      equal to Isis. Artemis, though, as the lunar huntress, (I think) is
      closely related to the Egyptian Bast, the cat god. And there's a
      story about Apollo with a lion, which Diana countered with a cat to
      tease him with, something like that. This clearly has a quality of
      guessing from fragments, though... Cats seem plenty progressive to
      me, but I don't know what a modern initiate would
      say.

      The question remains about Artemis and I definitely agree that Isis is too large to be embodied in Artemis.  The "Isis and Madonna" lecture by S. might give some insights though there isn't anything about Artemis.  Only the Mothers.    The lion with Apollo though would have to be Isis I am thinking.   ~chantel
