The Athenian sanctuary of the goddess Artemis Brauronia was second in importance to the main sanctuary at Brauron, a village north of Athens, from which the goddess gets her name.

Artemis was celebrated as a protector of pregnant women. Here, the goddess recieved offerings, often of woollen or silk garments, from the women of Athens.

As this was not the main sanctuary for Artemis Brauronia there was no temple, but instead a long hall with two side chambers, where local women could leave their offerings.
