    The great hero is shown resting on a rock with his legs stretched out in front of him, his club braced under his left armpit. The exceptionally fine and realistic rendering of the lean, muscled body and the powerful curve of the back bring to mind the works of Lysippos, a famous sculptor of the late fourth century B.C.
