    The Doryphoros (Greek u0394u03bfu03c1u03c5u03c6u03ccu03c1u03bfu03c2 Classical Greek Greek pronunciation: [dorypu02b0u00f3ros], “SpearBearer“; Latinised as Doryphorus) of Polykleitos is one of the best known Greek sculptures of classical antiquity, depicting a solidly-built, well-muscled standing warrior, originally bearing a spear balanced on his left shoulder.

    The work nonetheless forms an important early example of both Classical Greek contrapposto and classical realism; as such, the iconic Doryphoros proved highly influential elsewhere in ancient art.
