"DALI "IS A RUSSIAN GODDESS FROM THE REGION OF GEORGIA. SHE HAS DOMINION OVER ALL THE HOOFED AND HORNED ANIMALS OF THE MOUNTAINS, THE DEER AND THE MOUNTAIN GOATS, AND THE HUNT. THESE ANIMALS ARE SACRED TO HER, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED THERE HUNTED THEM FOR FOOD RESPECTED THAT FACT.

SHE WAS THOUGHT TO DWELL IN THE INACCESSIBLE REGIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS IN A CAVE OR A MOUNTAIN HUT WHERE SHE WOULD TEND AND MILK HER WILD FLOCK. SHE WAS A SHAPE-SHIFTER AND LIKED TO ASSUME THE FORM OF A MEMBER OF HER OWN FLOCK WHICH WOULD ALSO ATTRACT THE ATTENTION OF THE HUNTERS. ALTHOUGH SHE WAS SELDOM SEEN, SHE WAS DEPICTED AS A CAPTIVATING YOUNG WOMAN WHO WORE HER LONG GOLDEN HAIR IN BRAIDS. HER BEAUTY WAS BOTH IRRESISTIBLE AND TERRIBLE, AND HUNTERS WERE CAPTIVATED BY HER STRENGTH AND ETHEREAL BEAUTY WHENEVER SHE CHOSE TO BE SEEN.

BECAUSE SHE WAS A GODDESS OF THE HUNT, SHE SOMETIME CHOSE TO HAVE A ROMANTIC FLING WITH A MORTAL, AND WHENEVER A MAN BECAME HER LOVER, SHE GAVE HIM AN ARROW TIP OR A RING THAT BROUGHT HIM LUCK WITH THE HUNT, BUT IF HE WAS UNFAITHFUL TO HER, SHE WOULD TAKE CRUEL REVENGE. BUT, IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT THE PRICE FOR HER AFFECTION WAS HIGH FOR HER CHOSEN MAN WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO SLEEP WITH A MORTAL WOMAN AGAIN.

HUNTERS MADE OFFERINGS TO" DALI "BEFORE A HUNT AND AFTERWARDS IF THEY WERE SUCCESSFUL.
