Room Victory of Samothrace Landing

Denon wing - 1st floor

Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities
Hellenistic Art (3rd-1st centuries BC)

This magnificent Hellenistic statue may have commemorated a naval victory, possibly by a fleet from Rhodes in the 2nd century BC. Excavations on the island of Samothrace, where it was found in 1863, revealed that it originally stood on the prow of a marble ship, at the center of an ornamental fountain.
