History
The Marathon Boy or Ephebe of Marathon is a Greek bronze sculpture found in the Aegean Sea in the bay of Marathon in 1925; it is conserved in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, where it is dated ca 325-300 BCE. The Museum suggests that the subject may be a youthful depiction of Hermes, though none of the god's attributes are present. With its soft musculature and exaggerated contrapposto, its style manifests the influence of Praxiteles on his contemporaries; it is the closest contemporary reflection of Praxiteles' manner.
