View of a boxer—a pugilist. A Roman copy of a fourth century B.C. Greek original.
If you enlarge the image the leather gloves that the boxers wore, sometimes with metal bands—as in this case, are visible. Compare the handware of the next boxer.
Despite the “serenity” of this statue, boxing matches could go on for hours, and were won when your opponent conceded defeat or lost consciousness!
