This is a preliminary drawing of ECL-Bm.3:33-2012. The inscription on the Eton drawing states that this statue is made of bronze. See Anna Coliva et al., 'I Borghese e l'antico', (2011), p.183 which records that this statue was to be found in the so-called 'Room of Diogenes', and that it was placed by the same wall as the statue of Diogenes and next to the door leading to the so-called 'Room of the Hermaphrodite'.
