Atalanta, in Greek mythology, was a renowned and swift-footed huntress, a favorite of goddess Artemis. Abandoned in the wilderness as a baby, a she-bear suckled her to health, and she was later raised by hunters. She swears an oath of virginity to Artemis but is forced to marry when reunited with her father. Her marriage to Melanion is a short one and ends with the pair transformed into lions as a result of laying in a sacred temple of the gods.

I understand I should prefer
the peace in you, but there is
