Demosthenes (384-322), Roman copy of a statue by Polyeuktos, erected in the Athenian market place two years after his death, c.260 B.C. - British Museum, London, England.

Demosthenes (384-322), Roman copy of a statue by Polyeuktos, erected in the Athenian market place two years after his death, c.260 B.C. - British Museum, London, England.

NOTE: a knitted brow and compresed lips are suggestive of an inner struggle of a troubled mind. Demosthenes advocated resistance against Philip II of Macedonia. His opposition eventually forced him to commit suicide. Also note the great similarity of this copy with another Roman copy at the National Archeology Museum in Athens, Greece.
