This image illustrates a Roman marble copy circa 69-96 C.E.
The original Greek statue was in bronze and was already lost in antiquity.
Over 40 marble copies or fragments of the Diadoumenos are known to exist,
which demonstrates how popular this statue was to the ancient Romans. A detailed description
of this statue is available at the Metropolitan Museum of Art web site -

The IISOH would like to purchase a bronze copy made from a mold of this statue to place in the Sculpture Garden.

The benefactor can name this Sculpture Garden section which will be dedicated with
a marker engraved in stone (marble or granite) or cast in relief in bronze.
