Excerpt from book: 19. 6. one of the images carries torches. This image is represented on coins of Tanagra of the imperial age (Fig. 3). On these coins Artemis is figured as a huntress in a tetrastyle temple, with a spear in her raised right hand and a torch in her left; on each side of the temple is a palm-tree (see 8); and below is a ship with sailors. On one of the coins the goddess holds a torch in each hand. This may be the more correct copy of the image. Or possibly Pausanias may have mistaken the spear in the right hand of the goddess for a second torch. See Imhoof-Blumer and Gardner, Num. Comm. on Paus. p. 113, with pi. X iii.-v. As Aulis belonged to Tanagra (see 8), it was natural that the temple and image at Aulis should appear on coins of Tanagra. 19. 6. to sacrifice Iphigenia. The sacrifice of Iphigenia is represented on a mosaic found at Ampurias (the ancient Emporiae) in Catalonia. Heydemann held that this mosaic was a copy of the famous picture of Timanthes, as to which see Pliny, Nat. hist. xxxv. 73; Cicero, Orator, xxii. 74; Valerius Maximus, viii. n. 6. On the mosaic Iphigenia is being led to the altar by Ulysses; beside Ulysses, on the spectator's right, is Calchas with the knife in his hand, and next to him is Menelaus; on the other side of the altar Agamemnon is covering his face with his right hand. Other figures appear in the background. On a high column are images of Artemis and Apollo; and in the top right- hand corner Artemis appears holding by the antlers a stag, which is to be substituted for Iphigenia. If this mosaic is a copy of the picture by Timanthes, the artist has introduced an important variation into his copy by representing Agamemnon with his head unmufHed. See H. Heydemann, 'Das Opfer der Iphigenia, ' Archaologische Zcitung, 27 (1869), pp. 7-10, with...
