At first, they say, Demeter was angry at what had happened, but later on she laid aside her wrath and wished to bathe in the Ladon. So the goddess has obtained two surnames, Fury because of her avenging anger, because the Arcadians call being wrathful “being furious,” and Bather （Lusia） because she bathed in the Ladon. The images in the temple are of wood, but their faces, hands and feet are of Parian marble.
