|Description ||King Antiochus I of Commagene clasps the right hand of Hercules. Nemrut Dagi, Turkey.|
The photo on the left shows the original sculpture on the west terrace of Nemrut Dagi. At some time the sculpture looks like it has fallen over and smashed, here you can see that parts of it have been reconstructed.
The photo on the right shows a cast of the same sculpture which was taken in 1883, before most of the damage occurred. The cast is in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, United Kingdom.
