In the 12th century BCE, when Agamemnon's ships were immobilized by the goddess Artemis on their way to Troy during the Trojan War, Agamemnon sought to appease the goddess by sacrificing Iphigenia. However, Artemis intervened, and replaced the girl with a doe.
Iphigenia was later hunted down by the misthios Kassandra as part of her quest to eliminate Persephone's influence. Kassandra also recovered a battlaxe from Iphigenia's body which was said to be given to her by Klytaimnestra.
Legacy and influence
By the 5th century BCE, the Site of Iphigenia's Sacrifice within the Cursed Land of Oedipous in Boetia was still standing, a deer's corpse on the altar when the Spartan misthios Kassandra visited it. The Statue of Artemis that Iphigenia had reportedly taken from Tauris was also still standing in Attika by this time too.
