Summary/Abstract: The present article will deal with the attested cult of the Goddess Παρθένος as represented in the Tauric Chersonesus in the iconography of which the Greek apoikioi saw their Artemis without ever giving her that name. Of course, the questions aroused shall be more than the answers found since the attention here is focused upon the emergence and the development of the cult in these parts of the Black Sea area compared to the images on the artifacts and the epigraphic monuments.
