In Greek mythology, Meleager was the son of a King of Calydon, a city in Aetolia. His father had offended the goddess Diana who sent a wild boar to ravage the countryside, and Meleager with a band of companions set out to hunt it. The first to wound it was the virgin huntress Atlanta whom Meleager loved. When the boar was killed Meleager presented her with the head and pelt.
