The youthful hunter Aktaion is transformed into a stag (not shown in this image) by the goddess Artemis as punishment for spying upon her bath. His hounds then turn on their master and destroy him. The goddess is depicted driving a deer-drawn biga (chariot). She wears a crown and holds a bow in one hand.
