Kalymnos. The discovery by fishermen of a bronze statue is reported, probably of the LHel period (end 2nd−E1st Ct BC), in the sea between the island of Nera and Kephala, Kos. Of this equestrian statue, the preserved part is a male torso wearing a short chiton with short sleeves, a corselet and chlamys, and with his right arm raised and the other across his body; a sword hangs from a shoulder strap, which is decorated with an engraved plaque bearing a depiction of an Archaising Nike. The statue was removed to the laboratory of the EMA for desalination and conservation.
