  • Statue of a young man, mid–4th century b.c., Late Classical to Hellenistic
    Cypriot; Said to be from the temple at Golgoi
    Limestone; H. 63 3/4 in. (161.9 cm)
    The Cesnola Collection, Purchased by subscription, 1874–76 (74.51.2465)

    The regular features and serene expression of this statue, as well as its carefully modeled drapery that clarify the figure's stance, show the influence of High Classical Greek style. The young man holds a lustral branch in one hand and a round pyxis—probably containing incense—in the other. Like most votive statues dedicated to a god, he wears a wreath, here decorated with berries.
