heads. — Comp. XII: Small bronze figure (Hermes?); 509. Torso of
a youth (copy of a Greek work of the 5th cent.); between the co¬
lumns, Attic relief (5th cent.); by the window, 296. Sophocles,
*297. Euripides; behind, 302. Demosthenes. A side-room here (no
adm. at present) contains Bronzes from Boscoreale near Pompeii
(ornaments from a bed, vases, etc.) and objects discovered at Priene
in Asia Minor. — Comp. XI: 1051. Greek marble throne; 83. Demeter,
Roman copy of a 5th cent. Greek work; adjacent, *Aphrodite (?),
from the same workshop as the pediment-figures of the Parthenon;
by the window, ^Head of Anaereon, after Cresilas. On the opposite
wall, 925. Medea and the daughters of Pelias (copy of an Attic
relief; 5th cent.): 485. Thorn-extractor.

bronze, found at Cyzicus (4th cent.); opposite, 1492. Attic tomb-relief,
surmounted by a mourning Siren (end of 5th cent.); **1. Bronze
torso of a youth, probably Apollo, found near Eleusis (end of
5th cent.); opposite, **1482. Tomb-relief of a girl, a Greek work
of the first half of the 5th cent.; *2. Boy praying (or, perhaps, playing
at balls), a Greek bronze, perhaps of the school of Lysippus, or of the
3rd or 2nd cent. B. C, purchased by Frederick II. for 5000 thalers;
the arms were restored in France in the 17th cent, and it is therefore
uncertain whether the present 'intention' is the same as the original.

We now reach the '^Sculptures of the Christian Epoch.
This collection of works in marble, bronze, terracotta, and painted
stucco is now, thanks to the large additions made since 1873, un¬
equalled out of Italy, even in London or Paris. See lllusfriertes
