Actaeon

Actaeon, a Greek mythological figure, grandson of Cadmus and a famous huntsman. As a punishment, Actaeon was turned into a stag by the goddess Artemis. According to one version of the myth, he was punished because he saw Artemis naked, when, during a hunt, he surprised the goddess and her nymphs bathing. A different version of the myth tells that Artemis turned him into a stag because he boasted of excelling her in hunting
