Apollon, Artemis and Leto stand together by a temple pillar, probably representing the shrine of Delphoi. The youthful god is crowned with a wreath of laurel, and carries a laurel branch, phiale and bow in his hands. Artemis, standing next to him, holds an oinochoe jug and lyre. Their mother Leto, stand behind the pillar, she is crowned and veiled, as a symbol of female modesty, and holds a laurel wreath in her hands.
