According to tradition, Euripides was born in Salamís on September 23, about 480 bc, the day of the great naval battle between the Greeks and the Persians.

Euripides’ plays were criticized for their unconventionality, for their natural dialogue (his heroes and princes spoke the language of everyday life), and for their independence from traditional religious and moral values.

Just before the Persian sack of Athens (480 BC) the sculpted male freestanding figure witnessed a radical development: the symmetricality and frontality of the standing male was brought to an end by the shift of the figure's weight onto one leg, accompanied by a corresponding rise in the hip positioned over the flexed leg.
This style is also sometimes known as the "Severe" style, due to the serious facial expression of the figures and a move away from ornate surface treatment of hair and draperies to concentrate on form and movement.
Made of an alloy of copper and tin, bronze statues were kept polished and shiny: lips, and sometimes also eyebrows and nipples, were often inlaid with copper or silver, and the eyes were inset with glass paste and stones.
