Part of a large monument. Probably most of the sculptures do not show the original athlete who is recognized by the inscription but are more ideal images of an athlete.

Sisyphos I (lat. Sisyphus I) son of Daochos. He is glorified in the epigram as the warrior who, under Athena's special protection, never retreated before the enemy, and yet was never wounded in battle, from the very hour when he first put on his armour.

Daochos II (lat Daochus II) son of Sisyphos I and founder of the monument. The inscription says he dedicated the memorial to Lord Phoebus to honor his family.

Sisyphos II (lat. Sisyphus II), son of Daochus. He has no epigram, because he was a boy or ephebe.
