The Diadoumenos (c. 100 BC) is a Roman sculpture in marble after the original Greek bronze Diadouemos (c. 420 BC) by Greek Sculptor Polykleitos (C5th BC). Discovered in 1826 in the ‘House of the Diadoumenos’ on the Greek island of Delos, this famous work became known as the ‘Delos Diadoumenos’ and is now located in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
The Diadoumenos gets its name from the diadem or victory ribbon which the figure is tying around his head. This diadem was awarded to the victor of the pentathlon in Ancient Greece.
