After Polykeitos: Fragments of a marble statue of the Diadoumenos (youth tying a fillet around his head)

Special thanks to Paul for his donation!

This is a Roman copy of a Greek bronze originally made by Polykleitos. Interestingly, parts of this piece are marble and parts are plaster. The plaster portions were cast from another marble copy of the original bronze.
