Cerynthian (or Cerynean) Hind

Cerynthian (or Cerynean) Hind

in Greek mythology, was an animal of extraordinary swiftness, with golden horns and brazen feet, consecrated to Diana by the nymph Tagete. It lived on the mountain Ceryneia, in Arcadia; hence its name. Hercules was commanded to bring it alive to Eurystheus, and, after chasing it a whole year, he captured it near the river Ladon.
