Read in English

Una escultura del antiguo dios Hermes, en buen estado, fue descubierto en el centro de Atenas durante obras de alcantarillado, dijeron las autoridades el domingo.

El Ministerio de Cultura griego dijo que la cabeza, una de las muchas que servían como marcadores de calles en la antigua Atenas, fue encontrada el viernes y parece ser de alrededor del 300 a.C., es decir, de finales del siglo IV a.C. o principios del siglo III. Representa a Hermes en "una edad madura", dijo el ministerio, en contraste con sus representaciones habituales como joven.

La cabeza tiene el estilo de la famosa escultura griega Alcamenes, que floreció en la segunda mitad del siglo V a. C., dijo el ministerio.

Después de servir como marcador de calles, la cabeza, en algún momento, se había construido en la pared de un conducto de drenaje, dijo el ministerio.
