Spica

According to the According to the Babylonian Mul.Apin the constellation was known as “the furrow”, representing the goddess Shala’s ear of grain or corn. One star in the constellation, Spica, keeps the tradition, for in latin it means, ear of corn. The Greeks and Romans associated this constellation, Virgo, with their goddess of wheat, Demeter-Ceres, who in the early form of the myth was the virgin mother of Proserpina-Persephone.
