"An Amazon hoplite has fallen on both knees and turns round at her
attacker, her saber raised above her head. An archer on the right takes
aim at the Greek attacker. She is dressed in shoes, trousers, chiton,
corslet, and helmet with the cheek-pieces turned up."
[This bow seems to be unusually thick.]
