You're not offending me! It's all fascinating.

I've read that in ancient Greece and Rome, virginity meant "independent of a man". Therefore, the virgin goddesses like Artemis and Athena were not 'physical' virgins, they existed in their own right without being married to or otherwise dependent on a man.

Thanks for the thread link, Flavio, that helped a lot.
