Apollo of Piombino

Apollo has been represented in the shape of a Greek Kouros. It has been found under the Tuscan sea and sold to the Louvre Museum in 1834. It has been attributed to a foundry of the Greek colonies in South of Italy, cast in the V century b.C. But other researchers think that it could be a Roman copy of the I century b.C. of the original Greek statue.
