Greek art, about 480-460 BC

Statuette previously described as representing Heracles wearing his club and a cauldron. It could be an illustration of the flight of Delphi tripod. Today we think that it is more like an athlete holding a strigil and a pelvis.
Feet missing, otherwise intact

Biblio. Pierre Amandry, Herakles, Eurystheus and Erymanthe boar on two bronze sconces found at Delphi, in "Hellenic Correspondence Bulletin", Volume 66-67, 1942, pp. 150-156.
