STRONGS NT 735: Ἄρτεμις

Ἄρτεμις, Ἀρτέμιδος and Ἀρτεμιος, , Artemis, that is to say, the so-called Tauric or Persian or Ephesian Artemis, the goddess of many Asiatic peoples, to be distinguished from the Artemis of the Greeks, the sister of Apollo; cf. Grimm on 2 Macc., p. 39; (B. D. under the word ). A very splendid temple was built to her at Ephesus, which was set on fire by Herostratus and reduced to ashes; but afterward, in the time of Alexander the Great, it was rebuilt in a style of still greater magnificence: Acts 19:24, 27f, 34f. Gr. Stark in Schenkel i., p. 604f, under the word Diana; (Wood, Discoveries at Ephesus, Lond. 1877).
