Hy'mnia

*(Umni/a), a surname of Artemis, under which she was worshipped throughout Arcadia. She had a temple between Orchomnenus and Mantineia, and her priestess was at first always a virgin, till after the time of Aristocrates it was decreed that she should be a married woman. (Paus. 8.5.8, 12 § 3, 13. §§ 1, 4.)
