Every year since 2015, visitors to the National Archaeological Museum have the opportunity to see rare treasures hidden away in the museum’s storerooms for a limited amount of time. This year, the statue of the Youth of Mantineia is on display for three months. The statue was discovered in 1886 and portrays a beardless youth in motion. He is probably young Antinous, a favourite of the emperor Hadrian. The statue is dated around AD 130 – 140.
