The head and the body come from different statues. Bendis was a goddess of the hunt, similar to Artemis. Her worship originated in Thrace, a rugged mountainous region in what is today Bulgaria, but became fairly widespread throughout the Greek world by the Hellenistic period. She wears Oriental dress, with a soft leather Phrygian cap and a long-sleeved tunic and trousers.
