female Cretan spirit who presided over the harvest festival
KARME (or Carme) was a Cretan demi-goddess of the harvest. Her name was derived from the word karma a form of keiro, "to cut," "crop" or "shear." She was a daughter of Euboulos - probably a demi-god of ploughing - and the mother of the huntress Britomartis by Zeus. Karme's male counterpart was her grandfather Karmanor, the Cretan consort of the goddess Demeter.
