The Croatian Apoxyomenos, (the "Scraper") discovered in the Adriatic Sea near Croatia in 1996 fully covered in sponges and sea life. The statue is currently thought to be a Hellenistic copy of Lysippos’ Apoxyomenos from the second or first century BCE.The scraper is one of the conventional subjects of ancient Greek votive sculpture; it represents an athlete, caught in the familiar act of scraping sweat and dust from his body with a strigil.
.:. National Archaeological Museum / Archaeological Site of Tiryns: Murals from both the later and earlier palace of Tiryns. Female figures in procession bringing offerings to a deity, women on charriots observing a hunt, while the hounds have already overpowered the boars and an attendant on foot. The presence of women in religious processions as well as hunts is a sign of their elevated status in the Mycenaean world.
