This life-sized bronze statue in Athens' National Archaeological Museum is known as "The Antikythera Youth". It was recovered in 1903 from the wreck at Antikythera. The figure may represent Paris holding the Apple of Strife, referring to a mythical event that ultimately led to the Trojan War. (B. Foley)
