(5th century BC)

Said to have been a disciple of the bronzesmith Hageladas, Myron worked between 480-440 BC. He was from Athens and made statues for the victors of the Olympic games, and a group of Athena and Marsyas. He is also said to have made a perfect statue of a cow. Myron liked to make movements, his statues show us persons in action which is typical in the Discusthrower: the athlete is just about to throw the discus.
