An Attic plate dated to 520 - 500 BCE, depicting a Scythian archer, who is beardless and therefore possibly female. The archer is depicted with the traditional hip-slung bow-case (gorytos) and a compound bow. Made by Epictetus, (active c. 520 - 490 BCE). Now in the collection of the British Museum (London).
