From Eleusis, a Greek city where the goddess of grain, Demeter (Ceres in Latin), was worshipped. Triptolemus, to whom Ceres had imparted for all mankind valuable grains and the knowledge of agriculture, built a magnificent temple to Ceres at Eleusis, and established the worship of the goddess, under the name of the Eusinian mysteries, which, in their spendour and solemnity of their observance, surpassed all other religious celebrations among the Greeks.
