Unearthed in several pieces in Pesaro in 1530, this statue was restored and identified as the young Dionysos.
The sculpture is an oil-lamp holder made by a central or southern Italian workshop in the early augustan era and used to light the banquets of a patrician family. Formerly considered the most perfect Greek statue, it is in fact an eclectic work, possibly a copy of a lost late work by Polykleitos.
