Subject Description: Ares represented as a youthful warrior, nude except for a close-fitting Attic helmet. Long locks of hair extend from beneath the rim of the helmet, over the neck and the cheeks. Beard growth on the lower cheeks is also evident. Ares stands on a square plinth, with his weight on his left leg, his right foot slightly advanced, looking down slightly to his right. A palm-tree support is behind his left leg, and a strut attaches his lowered right hand (at his side) to his right thigh. He holds his bent left arm, over which there is an attachment for his shield, at waist level.
Condition: Nearly complete
Restored and reconstructed from many pieces. Now missing shield on left arm.
