Maximos is only known from a signature on a clay statuette of the goddess Artemis Ephesia . The goddess stands on a rectangular base to which a staircase leads. Her arms are outstretched, in her hands she is holding thick, downward sloping strands of wool. She wears a polo shirt on her head , her face is covered by a veil, which is flanked by two barely recognizable protomes . She wears two necklaces, under which three rows of breast-like structures can be seen, between the lower half of the body and the woolen strands there is a deer with bushy antlers on each side.
