This large bronze statue was found in the Rhône river in Lyon (ancient Lugdunum) in 1859. It appears to be the god Neptune (Greek: Poseidon). It dates to the second century A.D.
All of the other bronze statues that were found in modern times have been melted down for the reusing of the metal (sigh!).
