Relief plaque, Parian marble found in Athens, near Theseion. It most probably belonged to the facing of a funerary monument. It represents a naked youth with a helmet running to right. He may be an athlete participating in the hoplite race or a pyrrhic dancer. The work is remarkable for the bold rendering of motion and for the figure's coordination with the shape of the plaque, about 500 BC.
