Found in Piraeus in 1959.
4648. Bronze statuette of Artemis. The very careful workmanship is apparent in spite of the bad state of preservation. The goddess wears a high-girded Attic peplos and a himation. She was holding a libation bowl in her right hand and a bow in her left hand. The type belongs to the school of Praxiteles, known from the Attic reliefs of the end of the 4th century B.C.
