Agroteras Thusia

Agroteras Thusia was an annual festival at Athens in honor of Artemis, or Diana, in fulfilment of a vow made by the city before the battle of Marathon to offer in sacrifice a number of goats equal to that of the Persians slain in the conflict. The number was afterwards restricted to five hundred.
