A version of Artemis in Antalya

In this statue the goddess does not appear as a huntress, but rather as the protectress of wild animal. She is conceived as having just come to the rescue of a hunted deer, and is in the act of turning with angry mien on the pursuers. With her right hand she grasps an arrow from the quiver that hangs at her back, and in her left she holds the bow. The Mythology of Greece and Rome
