), the huntress, a surname of Artemis. (Hom. Il. 21.471
.) At Agrae on the Ilissus, where she was believed to have first hunted after her arrival from Delos, Artemis Agrotera had a temple with a statue carrying a bow. (Paus. 1.19.7
.) Under this name she was also worshipped at Aegeira. (7.26.2.)
The name Agrotera is synonymous with Agraea [AGRAEUS], but Eustathius (ad Il.
p. 361) derives it from the town of Agrae. Concerning the worship of Artemis Agrotera at Athens, see Dict. of Ant. s. v. Ἀγροτέρας Δυσία
