Description

The Anavysos kouros, which the Getty kouros resembles closely, was originally the grave marker for a man named Croesus. He was killed in battle, and the inscription on the statue's base implores the viewer to "stop and mourn beside the tomb of Kroisos, dead, whom once in the battle's front ranks raging Ares destroyed."
