Detail of Artemis and Marsyas from a painting depicting the satyr's contest with the god Apollo. Marsyas holds a skinning-knife and rests his elbow on a pillar inscribed with his name. He has the usual features of a satyr--pug nose and assine ears and tail. The goddess holds a pair of hunting spears and wears her hair tied back with ribbons in a ponytail.
