This youthful male torso, nearly life size, is likely based on a Greek bronze original. This Roman copy required iron bars and dowels to support the weight of marble limbs. Evidence of long, wavy hair remaining on his shoulders may identify this youth as the young Dionysus, Greek god of wine and revelry.
