Diskobolos (discus-thrower) of Myron. An athlete is coiled up in a taut, memontary pose, about to throw the discus - one of the pentathlete's five events. The cast combines a headless statue from Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli and the head of a statue found in Rome. Copied closely from a lost bronze victor statue by the Athenian sculptor, Myron, active c 460-440 BC.
