The ram's head has been associated with various gods and religious cults. In Greece it is associated with the goddess Artemis and in Rome with Mars, the Roman God of War. In Greek and Roman literature it is also associated with heroes and warriors. For example, in the myth of the Argonauts, the ram's skin worn by the hero Iason was a symbol of his heroism and courage.
