20 Inches High x 24 Inches Wide x 15 Inches Deep

This bust is from a greater than life-sized bronze statue measuring 6 feet 10 inches (82 inches) in height that was discovered at the bottom of the sea off cape Artemision in north Euboea. There has been some debate whether the sculpture depicts the Greek god Zeus or the Greek god Poseidon. The sculpture is dated to be from 470-450 B.C.E. The sculptor is unknown with some scholars attributing the piece to Calamis, others to Onatas of Aegina and yet others to Ageladas of Argos.
