Apollo with Zither

175 - 200. White marble. Room 072

This statue is a Roman copy of a late Hellenistic statue (c. 100 B. C.) which, in turn, was inspired by the main statue of the temple of Apollo Sosianus in Rome, made by the Athenian sculptor Timarchides (c. 150 B. C.). The god is represented as the guide of the muses and the source of divine inspiration, playing his favourite instrument with his (now lost) right hand.
