According to the local lore, the village was allegedly the place where Artemis, The well-wisher, namely the goddess who protected those disembarking from the arriving ships, but also the one who brought about favorable resolutions to various troubles, was worshipped. Though this lore made for good stories, it is highly unlikely that is historically accurate, for in ancient time places were Artemis was worshipped were called Artemissia. According to a scholar the name Artemonas, or Artemon, relies on the same linguistic structure as that of Parthenonas, or Parthenon, which itself derives etymologically from Parthena meaning virgin, virginity being one of the attributions of Artemis.
One and a half kilometers north of Apollonia, Artemonas is one of the most picturesque villages of Siphnos, thanks to the neoclassical architecture of many of its houses and its beautiful gardens.
