New Defender's Study Bible Notes

19:27 Diana. Diana (same as Artemis) was not only the goddess of hunting, but was considered—at least in Asia and in many other places around the Graeco/Roman world—to be the “mother goddess” of all nature, much like Gaia, the goddess currently being widely promoted as Mother Earth in the New Age movement. The temple of Diana at Ephesus was so magnificent that it was considered one of the “seven wonders of the world” in ancient times.
