"This is a fragment showing a collapsing archer. The Amazon wears
sleeves under a belted peplos with overfold, and a helmet. In her left
hand she still holds the bow (of Scythian type); the right arm is raised
and extended. She looks up at her opponent (now lost)."
Dietrich von Bothmer. 1957. Amazons in Greek Art. Oxford: Clarendon
[Interesting combo of the peplos (traditional for Greek women), the
helmet (traditional for Greek men) and the spotted sleeves (associated with
those barbaric easterners, including Amazons)]
