Detail of the large statue of Artemis. The multiple appendages have been variously interpreted as breasts (probable if she was a fertility deity), bee eggs, bull testicles, etc.
Above them note carefully the representations of various signs of the Zodiac! Some believe that the semi-circular scarf above the signs of the Zodiac is a stole of bees.
