Artemis and Apollo


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Artemis and Apollo sit on a rock under a grape arbor, a dog between them. Artemis is dressed in hunting boots and short chiton, her quiver visible behind her right shoulder, torch in hand. Apollo, nude, holds a stringed instrument (a "kithera") and a plectrum. The relief of the slightly convex plaque is framed by a grooved and hatched border pierced with rivet holes. Typologically, this plaque is related to Walters 71.594.
