The Calydonian Boar
It was a gigantic boar sent by Artemis to ravage the countryside of Calydon to punish King Oeneus for neglecting her in the offerings of the first fruits to the gods.
The king summoned heroes from throughout Greece to hunt the beast. The famed Calydonian Boar Hunt which ensued was led by the king’s son Meleager, who struck the killing blow. However, the hero awarded the skin to Atalanta as a prize for drawing first blood.
