Topic: Discobolus


  
  Discobolus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The so-called Discobolus of Myron (Greek Δισκοβόλος του Μύρωνα) is a famous sculpture from Greek antiquity.
Naturally, as always in Greek athletics, the Discobolus is completely naked.
The sculpture of Discobolus belongs to the zenith of the classical period between 460-450 B.C. The original Greek sculpture in bronze has been lost.

 New U.S. Discobolus Stamp   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
In this case, Myron has caught a discus thrower at the peak of his backswing, poised for eternity just before spinning his body in powerful rotations to give the discus even greater speed at the moment of release.
History does not record whether Discobolus recognized a particular Olympic athlete, but Myron is known to have produced other statues honoring specific heroes.
Discobolus appeared a second time in 1948 on a stamp (Scott 979) commemorating the 100th anniversary of the American Turners, a society for the advancement of physical education and recreation that was popular in the first half of the 20th century.

 Carlo Fea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For political reasons he was forced to take refuge in Florence; on his return to Rome in 1799 he was imprisoned as a Jacobin by the Neapolitans, who at that time were occupying Rome, but was shortly afterwards freed and appointed Commissario delle Antichità and librarian to Prince Chigi.
At Rome in 1781 Fea discovered a statue of a discus thrower, the so called "Discobolus", one of the known Roman copies of the famous Greek original statue in bronze created by Myron.
Fea helped frame legislation to control the trade in, and excavation of, the antiquities of Rome, and undertook archaeological work on the Pantheon and the Forum there.
