Bendis in Greek mythology, was a goddess of the moon in Thrace, sometimes identified with Diana, sometimes with Proserpina. She had the surname Dilonchos, "the goddess with the double spear," because she was represented with two spears in her hand. Her worship was extended from Thrace and Lemnos to the remainder of Greece. In the Piraeus near Athens a yearly festival was celebrated June 4, called Bendidea.
