English: The sculpture depicting a discus thrower is described in surviving accounts from Antiquity, but it took a long time before archaeologists were able to reconstruct the original on the basis of fragments from a range of copies from Antiquity. For example, the head was placed in several different ways before settling on a final version; this is evident in the two versions housed at the Royal Cast Collection. The strange horns in the figure’s forehead are the remnants of a device used to support a victory wreath.

This is a 3D scan of a plaster cast of the sculpture ‘Discobolus (The Discus Thrower)’ made by sculptor Myron of Eleutherae dated circa 450 BCE.

The scan is made from the cast (ref. KAS1549) in The Royal Cast Collection at SMK – National Gallery of Denmark.
