Bronze statuette of Apollo


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 156

Apollo was a youthful god who presided over a wide variety of activities, from the initiation of boys into manhood to the utterance of oracles. His attributes were the bow and the lyre. This small figure, which would have been dedicated at the god's sanctuary, has a bow in the left hand and probably poured a libation from a phiale in the right hand.
