Myron was a Greek sculptor who worked from around 480 to 440 BC. A contemporary of Phidias and Polyclitus, Myron is considered one of the first artists to capture the human figure in a lifelike form. In addition to Discobolus, Myron famously created the group sculpture depicting Athena and Marsyas. The original bronze versions of these are considered lost, but they live on through marble replications created by the Romans.
