A view of a "human-size" marble statue of Marsyas. In Greek mythology, Marsyas picked up a flute to challenge Apollo who was playing a lyre, and because of this was punished. His punishment was that he was executed by being skinned alive!
A Roman copy of an original from the 3rd century B.C. The statue was found in Tarsus, Turkey. It is on display in the Archeology Museum in Istanbul.
