Copyright ©. Photos : www.hellenicaworld.com

The boy is depicted nude and half bent-over with his head raised. The upper part of his torso
leans sharply forward. The figure has been interpreted as a pancratiast or a wrestler depicted at
the moment of assuming position just priot to the match.
His stance and expression assume the presence of a second opposing figure
The left side of the statue is corroded by sea organisms, while the right, which was buried in the sediment of the sea bed, is preserved in excellent condition.
Parian marble
Early 1st c. B.C.
