SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Taygete

In Classical Greek mythology, Taygete was a nymph, one of the Pleiades according to the Bibliotheca and a companion of Artemis, in her archaic role as potnia theron, "Mistress of the animals", with its roots in prehistory. Mount Taygetos in Laconia, dedicated to the goddess, was her haunt; as he mastered each of the local nymphs one by one, Olympic Zeus pursued Taygete, who invoked her protectress Artemis. The goddess turned Taygete into a doe with golden horns, any distinction between the Titaness in her human form and in her doe form is blurred: the nymph who hunted the doe in the company of Artemis is the doe herself; as Pindar conceived the myth-element in his third Olympian Ode, "the doe with the golden horns, which once Taygete had inscribed as a sacred dedication to Artemis Orthosia", was the Ceryneian Hind that Heracles pursued. For the poet, the transformation was incomplete, the doe-form had become an offering. Pindar, a knowledgeable mythographer, hints that the mythic doe when slain and offered to Artemis continues to exist, to be hunted once again by Heracles at a time.

Karl Kerenyi points out "It is not easy to differentiate between the divine beast, the heroine and the goddess". According to Pausanias Taygete conceived Lacedaemon, the mythical founder of Sparta, through Zeus, Eurotas. Pausanias noted, at Amyclae. According to Pseudo-Plutarch, Taygete was the wife of Lacedaemon, sometimes referred to as Sparta, whose name was given to the city of Sparta, their son was named Himerus. In a rare variant of the myth, Taygete was called the daughter of Agenor. Theoi Project – Nymphe Taygete Ruck, Carl A. P. and Danny Staples, 1994.

When interviewed in 2008 Gross was incarcerated at the US Penitentiary and had a 2014 parole hearing planned. In September 2019, Gross petitioned the US Court of Appeals as he believed that he was eligible for mandatory release after thirty years, as his crimes occurred before the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 came into effect.

The Court found in fact of the Bureau of Prisons, who argued that because he is serving two consecutive life sentences, he would in fact need to serve thirty years on each of his two life sentences before being eligible for mandatory parole. As of 2019 Gross was incarcerated at Terre Haute FCI in Indiana with a release date of November 1, 2048.
