According to the legend as related by Diodorus, Semiramis was of noble parents, the daughter of the fish-goddess. Derketo abandoned her at birth and drowned herself. Doves fed the child until Simmas, the royal shepherd, found and raised her. She then married Onnes or Menones, one of Ninus' generals. In other hand she was the lady of hanging gardens.
