Actaeon (Aktaion) is transformed into a stag (indicated by the pair of horns) by Artemis, and torn apart by his dogs. Artemis is depicted with flaming torch and quiver. She is attended by Lyssa (personification of raving madness) who drives the dogs to fury. Lyssa is depicted as a Thracian huntress (similar to Bendis) with a fox-head cap. Zeus passively observes the scene.
