Found in the area of the Mesogeia. Attica
He stood atop the grave of a young Athenian aristocrat,
Aristodikos, whose name is carved on the base.
The plasticity of the muscles, the movement of the arms and the
vigor of the statue as a whole place it at the end of the series of
kouroi. A landmark in the development of sculpture, it
demonstrates the transition from late Archaic to early Classical.
About 510-500 B.C.
