The head and body of two different Roman copies were combined in the 18th century CE. The god appears in the so-called "Lykeios type", with the right forearm resting across his head. The model was either an original, created around 340 BCE in the circle around Praxiteles or a Hellenistic remodeling from the time around 150 BCE. Marble. Roman copy, around 140 CE. Acquired in Rome, Italy, in 1766 CE. It is on display at the Altes Museum in Berlin, Germany.
