Gronze Greek classical statue of a youth by sculptor Euphranor. from the Antikythera shipwreck, Circa 340-330 BC, Athens National Archaeological Museum. Cat No X13396.

The statue has been thought to depict Perseus who would have been holding the head of Medusa, but is more probably a depiction of Paris who would have been holding the 'apple of strife', ready to award it to the most beautiful goddess, Aphrodite. Probably sculpted by Sikyonian sculptor Euphranor. .
