In Ancient Greek Religion and mythology, Demeter (/Dɪˈmiːtər/; Attic: Δημήτηρ Dēmḗtēr [Dɛːmɛ́ːtɛːr]; Doric: Δαμάτηρ Dāmā́tēr) is the Goddess of the harvest and agriculture, presiding over grains and the fertility of the Earth. Her cult titles include Sito (Σιτώ), “She of the Grain”, as the giver of food or grain and Thesmophoros (Θεσμός, Thesmos: divine order, unwritten law; Φόρος, Phoros: bringer, bearer), “Law-Bringer”, as a mark of the civilized existence of agricultural society.

Although Demeter is often described simply as the Goddess of the harvest, she also presided over the sacred law, and the cycle of life and death. She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian mysteries, a religious tradition that predated the Olympian pantheon, and which may have its roots in the Mycenaean period of 1400–1200 BCE. Demeter was often considered to be the same figure as the Anatolian Goddess Cybele, and in Rome she was identified as the Latin Goddess Ceres.
