Zante Mythology
Zakynthos, the first inhabitant of the island and, eventually, its king came from Arcadia. According to a theory the Arcadians came first on the island in the first millennium B.C., in their effort to find new colonies. The rich music tradition and the worship of the ancient Goddess Artemis were characteristics of the land of Arcadia. In mythology it is stated that Artemis, Goddess of hunting, used to visit and wander into the forests of Zakynthos, while Apollo praised the beauty of the island playing his lyre.
