Roman bronze statuette of the Goddess Diana / Artemis standing to right, wearing a short chiton (tunic). She is taking an arrow from the quiver on her back with her right hand.
This quality figurine would have been a votive offering for a shrine or for a private lararium (a small domestic altar) in which Romans placed statuettes of the household gods (the Lares) or of any other deities they worshipped.
In Greek mythology Artemis was the goddess of nature, chastity, virginity, the hunt and the moon. Artemis and Apollo were the children of Zeus and Leto, She asked her father to allow her to remain chaste for her life – which she chose to devote to hunting and protecting the natural environment.
Condition: good condition, very attractive olive green patina with small deposits of cuprite. Signs of wear consistent with age and use. See images for own impression.

I asked the seller for a certificate. He sent a pdf file. What I received was not a certificate but a description. I contacted the seller again but she was not willing to send a real certificate.
Fast shipment, carefully packaged, item as described and pictured. I'm very happy. Would gladly recommend this seller.
