Bronze. Mid-4th century BCE.
Height 155 cm.
Inv. No. 4648.

Athens, Archaeological Museum of Piraeus
(Αθήνα, Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Πειραιά)

Origin:
Found in Piraeus in 1959.
Description:
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.
