About this artwork
This small, delicate drinking cup is undecorated except for the interior, depicting Artemis, goddess of the hunt, within the tondo, or circular field. A quiver on her back, she holds a bow and two arrows in her left hand, and in her right hand she extends a torch. An inscription added in dark red that runs from in front of her to behind her head states that one Hippodamas is handsome.
