English: Fragmentary statue of a man clad in a chlamys (cloak). The head (now lost) wore a diadem, symbol of royalty, of which a part is extant on the right shoulder. May reproduce a portrait of Alexander the Great by Euphranor, which Pliny the Elder (24, 78) mentions as the creator of a portrait of Alexander and Philip in a chariot. Marble, Roman copy of the 1st–2nd century after a Hellenistic original. Found near Pezenas, southwest of France.

Provenance : environs de Pézenas, Hérault, France.
