The original is a marble sculpture of a male nude torso signed by the Athenian sculptor Apollonius, the son of Nestor, and was long thought to be a 1st-century B.C.E. original. It is now believed that Apollonius copied a 2nd century original. The torso had much influence on late renaissance, early baroque sculptors and was much studied by the likes of Michelangelo.
