About

Reproduction after the pair of two bronze statues from the 1st century BC (which are Roman replicas of the original Greek statues from the 4th century BC), now housed in the Naples National Archaeological Museum, after being found in the Villa of the Papyri in Herculaneum.

In ancient Greece, runners competed in the ‘stadion’, the most prestigious event in the Olympic Games. The winner had the honor of giving his name to the Olympiad in which he triumphed, and to light the Olympic flame in the following games. Astylos of Croton, Oebotas of Dyme, Cylon of Athens… the names of some of those athletes have crossed the centuries and reached the present.

Just like these two bronze statues from the 1st century BC (which are Roman replicas of the original Greek statues from the 4th century BC), now housed in the Naples National Archaeological Museum, after being found in the Villa of the Papyr in Ercolano.

Please note there can be slight differences between the color of the item you receive and the pictures on the website due to the handmade nature of the product. The important thing to note is that the patina is not a paint but a very thin conversion coat on the surface of the bronze. -->Bronze
