The youthful hunter Actaeon is transformed into a stag--the metamorphosis is not shown in this image--by the goddess Artemis as punishment for spying upon her bath. He is savaged by his own hounds. The goddess drives a deer-drawn biga chariot. She holds a bow in one hand and wears a crown and veil.
This image is a montage of several images of the vase.
