Cast Gallery catalogue number: B035

Cast No. B035

The inscription on the left side of her skirt reads:
Nikandre dedicated me to the far-shooter of arrows, the excellent daughter of Deinodikes of Naxos, sister of Deinomenes, wife of Phraxos n[ow?]
Nikandre was almost certainly a priestess. Far-shooter of arrows refers to the god Apollo.
One of her hands survives (not shown in the cast) and is pierced by a drill hole, perhaps to hold the lead for a lion.
