The Discobolus of Myron (“discus thrower”, Greek: Δισκοβόλος, Diskobólos) is a #Greek sculpture that was completed towards the end of the Severe period, circa 460-450 BC.
The original Greek bronze is lost but the work is known through numerous Roman copies, both full-scale ones in marble, which was cheaper than bronze.
