Apollo

150 - 160. Marble. Not on display

This is a Roman variant of the Tiber Apollo by Calamis (about 450 B. C.). When this statue was made in the Antonine period it was common practice to embellish Greek models with additional attributes. Apollo is thus presented as an archer with a bow (now lost) in his left hand, a quiver and cloak. Perched on his left forearm was a crow, considered to have divinatory powers, while the serpent on his torso refers to his victory over the Pythian serpent in Delphi.
