A copy to scale in marble of the bronze statue of Athena
The difference between this copy and the original is attributed
to the different material used.
The extended position of the arm in the bronze Athena Piraeus could
not be reproduced in marble without the addition of an awkward support.
Height 230 cm, about 130-90 BCE
