The regular features and serene expression of this statue, as well as its carefully modeled drapery that clarify the figure's stance, show the influence of High Classical Greek style. The young man holds a lustral branch in one hand and a round pyxisprobably containing incensein the other. Like most votive statues dedicated to a god, he wears a wreath, here decorated with berries.
