White marble. Naked youth. Missing: head, entire left arm, right arm below elbow, both legs below knees. Stands, leaning slightly forward, with left leg advanced. Right arm is carried across the body so that the elbow is above the naval. Head was made in one piece with the body. Left arm, right forearm and left lower leg were attached separately. In 1981 the number had disappeared from this statue at the time of recataloguing. The statue corresponds to Luce's description in every aspect except that he says that the left leg rests on a rock. There is a dowel in the base for this but at present the lower leg and rock cannot be found. See also ms6012a-b.
