In honor of the relays, this week’s image of the week is of the Diskobolos of Myron. This photograph is an albumen print taken by Giorgio Sommer. The Penn Museum Archives currently has a selection of Sommer prints on display in the archives hallway, particularly photographs from Pompeii. So while you’re visiting for the Penn Relays this weekend, stop in at the Penn Museum and see some beautiful historic prints, too!
