  • Description

    Obverse, Apollo with bow and deer
    Reverse, woman

    The subject is that of Apollo pursuing a woman. His attributes in this context are interesting, not least because they are also associated with his sister Artemis. The deer may emphasize his fleetness. The bow becomes more like that of Eros.
