221 In Brauron and Mounichia there were Arkteia for young girls. Both of the sanctuaries also had a dining facility, because the girls would have stayed in the sanctuary some time before ‘playing the bear’. The found statues of young children are a conformation for the Arkteia too. Halai yielded neither a dining facility nor statues of little boys and girls, which places doubt on the possible Arkteia and the foreign origin of Artemis Tauropolos. A main point of interest by a close examination of these cults has been the myths and especially the myth or legend of Euripides, the Iphigeneia in Tauris.

Both the temple of Artemis Tauropolos in Halai Araphenides and the temple of Artemis in Brauron were furnished with an adyton. One may imagine that part of the initiation, which often included a ritual death and may have been connected somehow with the tomb of Iphigeneia, took place in the adyton. 178 However, the presence of adyta in at least the two temples of Brauron and Halai Araphenides was apparently crucial to the cult and played an important role in the rituals. 4.
