Statue of a Satyr from Sabina

This marble statue came from the Villa at Monte Calvo in Sabina, Italy. In the villa, the boyish satyr was part of a fountain, for the jug is pierced for receiving a water pipe. The Berlin statue belongs to a series of copies, which go back to a lost original created around 370-350 BCE by the Greek sculptor Praxiteles (395 - 330 BCE). Roman copy, c. 150 CE. Acquired in 1826 CE. It is on display at the Altes Museum in Berlin, Germany.
