Every four years, an important festival was also taking place to Honor the Goddess. A parade with girls aged 5-10 dedicated to the goddess would start from the centre of Athens and would terminate in the Temple. The girls were wearing furs of bear, the Sacred Animal of the Goddess. This was like a preparation process that symbolized the passage from childhood to youth and marriage. In fact, most items found in this archaeological site were female personal items, clothes and jewerly.
