  • Marble statue of a man from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, usually identified as Maussolus.  This colossal draped male, whose head was carved separately and reconstructed from four fragments, stands to the front, with the weight on the right leg and the left leg slightly bent.The face in undoubtedly a portrait , with its flowing hair, short curly beard, and somewhat full cheeks and lips.The drapery consists of a long chiton and himation very finely composed about the lower part and over the left shoulder and about the left arm. He wears shoes consisting of an inner slipper, and a sandal with a laced metal frame.  The proportions of the face give the strongly craved features and the size and bearing of the statue, the portraiture apparent in the head, the non-Greek use of the under tunic, and, particularly, the sword scabbard held in the hand, suggest that the statue is of a heroised ruler or lord.

  • Marble statue from the Mausoleum of Halikarnassos, the so-called ‘Maussollos’. It  is a representation of standing male figure on large scale.  The head of the statue survives with facial features well preserved. The eyes are deep-set and rather small. The cheeks are full and fleshy. The mouth is closed and over the lip is a lightly carved short moustache, which merges on either side of the mouth with the close-trimmed beard. The beard is rendered by short curling locks.  The pose of the statue is easy and relaxed. The weight is on the right leg. The relaxed left leg is set forward, so that the left knee pushes out the garment. This stance makes the right hip higher and the left one lower. This pattern is reversed in the upper half of the body: the right shoulder is lowered, while the left is raised. The remains of both upper arms are held close to the body and the lower left arm was extended. The right arm was attached at the shoulder (now lost), where there is a rectangular socket for a dowel. The head and the neck were made separately, carved from Parian marble and set into the body, which was made of Pentelic marble.  The man wears a long tunic, unusual also over his chest, a large himation gathered at the waist and sandals. He has been reconstructed with a sword scabbard in his left hand.  The statue is reconstructed from several fragments. Details were painted.  The statue represents a heroised member of the Hekatomnid dynasty. There is no reason to identify him specifically with Maussollos.
