The strength of the Greek Gods! Zeus or Poseidon? (National Archaeological Museum) Athens - Greece

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

Bronze statue of Zeus or Poseidon, found at the bottom of the sea off cape Artemision, in north Euboea ca. 460 BC.

Bronze statue of a god, found at the bottom of the sea off cape Artemision, in north Euboea. The god, shown in great stride, extends his left arm forward, while throwing the thunderbolt or the trident, which he held in his right hand. The identification as Zeus or Poseidon is controversial (the former seems more probable). The bronze statue is one of the few preserved original works of the Severe Style, notable for the exquisite rendering of motion and anatomy. It is certainly the work of a great sculptor of the early Classical period. Height 2,09 m.
