English: Bronze statue of Hercules.
Italiano: Ercole cattura la cerva di Cerinea (una delle "dodici fatiche"). Essendo la cerva consacrata ad Artemide, Ercole eseguì l'ordine di catturarla ma senza ucciderla, dopo averla sfiancata nell'inseguimento. Bronzo con funzioni di fontana, di epoca romana, da Torre del Greco, probabile copia di originale lisippeo. Secondo la leggenda la cerva aveva corna d'oro e zoccoli di bronzo, quindi il presente gruppo scultoreo, che è tuttora ravvivato da inserti policromi (negli occhi, nelle labbra), va probabilmente immaginato come originariamente arricchito da dorature e ulteriori placcature in rame rosso.
