Calathus

Resource Toolbox

in Greek mythology, was the holy basket of Demeter (Ceres), which, on the evening of the fourth day of the Eleusinia, was drawn about on the wagon of the goddess in procession. This was done in memory of the plucking of flowers by Proserpine, and .of her abduction by Pluto; therefore it was also filled with flowers, and each of the basket-carriers had flowerwreaths about her.
