- Greek DEMON of migraine headaches. Antaura is a female demon, who rises up out of the sea, moves like the wind, shouts like a deer, and cries like an ox. She enters into people’s heads to cause intense pain. She commands other headache demons to do the same. Antaura is thwarted by the goddess Artemis, who rules the woodlands and the waxing moon. In lore Artemis diverts Antaura into the head of a bull in the mountains.
