    I need a internet photo of Callisto that is depicted in either a painting, sculpture, relic, pottery, or even decorations. The piece must be between 1000 BC - 500 BC. I also must know the artist's name, the title, format, the size, the date, and the current location.

    There are five variations (at least) of the virgin-pursued-by-god theme:

    3. Syrinx and Pan: a meta-narrative or story within a story, told by Mercury, serving to put Argus to sleep.
