This is the Roman adaptation of a famous Greek statue of Artemis which was found in Italy. The Romans probably identified her as Diana, the Latin equivalent of Artemis: the hunter goddess reaches for an arrow in her quiver, her left hand touches the head of the deer beside her (the two hands were restored later). She is dressed in a short chiton, her mantle is draped around her waist. She wears sandals, typical for hunters. Her hair, tied in a bun, is adorned with a diadem. Her head turns to the side — perhaps she is about to pick her prey. For a long time, the statue stood in the royal palace of Versailles, hence the modern name.
