Headword: Tauropolon
Adler number: tau,165
Translated headword: worshipped at Tauris, drawn by bulls, bull-hunter
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] Artemis, because like a bull she goes around everything, as Apollodorus [writes];[1] Istros in the third [book] of Miscellanies [writes] that [she] drove to every land the bull which had been sent against Hippolytos by Poseidon.[2] But others [say] that [she] struck, whence also [is derived the adjective taurobo/los ["striking bulls"]. And Athena is called Taurobolos[3] in Andros, for when Anios gave a bull to the sons of Atreus, he bade them, wherever they should leap out of the ship, to found [a temple to] Athena, and thus they would have a good voyage. But he leapt out on Andros.[4]
