Young Man

First quarter of the I a.C. century. White marble. Room 072

The soft, sensual appearance of the torso, with details such as swollen nipples and delicately rounded chest and belly regions, is typical of late Hellenistic sculpture. Its typology coincides with that of the Hellenistic Eros in the Museum in Cos which is based on the Eros of Parion by Praxiteles (fourth century B. C.). Much restored in the seventeenth century, it has now been stripped of all later additions.
