A view of a "human size" marble statue of Apollo.  Apollo was the twin brother of Artemis, offspring of Zeus.  He was a very popular god, being associated with oracles, healing, archery, music, . . .

This statue has him playing a seven-stringed lyre (Cithara; "Apollo Citharoedus").  The statue dates to the second century A.D. and is from Miletus (Balat, Turkey).

The statue is on display in the Archeology Museum in Istanbul.
