In the ancient Greek religion (Hellenism), one of the important myths is the rape of Persephone, daughter of Demeter.
Hades (god of the Underworld) tempted Persephone with a narcissus and sprung from a hole in the ground and hauled the maiden Goddess to the underworld. Hades offered all of the riches of the underworld (including gold, silver, and gems), all of which Persephone rejected. Demeter, her mother, searched for her missing daughter, abandoning her duties of fruitfulness of plants, bringing about winter. Only Artemis/Diana, Goddess of the Moon, would challenge Zeus or Hades and tell Demeter where Persephone was. By the time that Demeter arrived in the underworld, Persephone had eaten a single pomegranate seed and Hades declared that made her his wife. Zeus negotiated an agreement where Persephone spent one third of the year with Hades as Queen of the Underworld, one third of the year with Zeus as his hand-maiden, and one third of the year with Demeter, as Goddess of springtime. Some modern Wiccans associate this with a woman balancing spouse, work, and family.
