Archaic black-figure amphora with Artemis, Paris and Hector

Hand-painted archaic black-figure amphora depicting Artemis, Paris and Hector

Hand-painted archaic black-figure amphora depicting Artemis, Paris and Hector. An ideal souvenir from Greece!

Artemis, also known as Diana, was one of the Olympian deities in the Ancient Greek religion and mythology. She was the goddess of the hunt, the wilderness, wild animals, the Moon and chastity. Artemis was the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the patron and protector of young girls, and was believed to bring disease upon women and relieve them of it. Much like Athena and Hestia, Artemis preferred to remain a maiden and is sworn never to marry.

The amphora depicts Artemis accompanied by Paris and Hector, the two brothers which were among the main characters of Homer’s epic poem Iliad, set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy by a coalition of Greek kingdoms. 
Artemis plays a significant role in the war and has been represented as a supporter of Troy because her brother Apollo was the patron god of the city.
