From the Christopher Morcom Collection.SNG BM describes Artemis as removing the arrow from the stag, but it is clear from this well-preserved specimen that Artemis is actually inspecting the arrow. This is most apparent in the careful engraving of the goddess’ fingers, whose positions on the arrow are in keeping with the correct form for testing the straightness of the arrow.
