The Discobolus of Myron ("discus thrower") is a Greek sculpture completed at the start of the Classical period at around 460 - 450 BC. The sculpture depicts a youthful male athlete throwing discus. 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,[1] such as the first to be recovered, the Palombara Discobolus, and smaller scaled versions in bronze.
