Example text

Agamemnon’s left foot is placed on what seems to be the stone altar of Artemis/Diana, as suggested by the bronze figure with two deer beside her. In the sky above is Artemis/Diana crowned and holding a bow, looking towards Iphigenia being carried towards her by a deer. What is striking about these figures (and perhaps, though we will never know, about Timanthes’ original) is that the king is the only one who knows how to react to what is happening.
