Was Artemis a goddess at the time Pandora opened the jar?

Yes, she was. All the gods and goddesses gave a gift to Pandora. Pandora means all gifts.

Yes, she was the same generation as Hephaestus. Both were children of Zeus. The Titan Prometheus was once assigned the task of creating the race of man. He afterwards grew displeased with the mean lot imposed on them by the gods and so stole fire from heaven. Zeus was angered and commanded Hephaistos (Hephaestus) and the other gods create the first woman Pandora, endowing her with beauty and cunning. He then had her delivered to Prometheus' foolish younger brother Epimetheus as a bride.Source(s): https://www.theoi.com/Heroine/Pandora.html

Pandora did NOT open a jar.
Pandora opened a BOX.
Thus the saying 'Pandora's Box'.
Artemis was a goddess before Pandora opened the BOX.
Artemis is Apollo's sister.
