Artemis shoots arrows to kill Acteon while his hunting dogs attack him. The obverse of this krater shows the goat-god Pan chasing a shepherd with ithyphallic herm in background, and is the vase for which the Pan Painter was named by the Classical scholar J.D. Beazley. The vase was possibly found in Cumae (Cuma) near Naples."
