Athena Parthenos and some other pieces

I'm still drowning in work so this will be a quick one - some fresh shots from the National museum.

The very famous Athena Parthenos, a later copy however.

Poseidon (125-100 BC). Could have been Zeus but the dolphin at his feet reveal his true identity.

Funerary lebes-kalpe (tomb monument). Ca 350 Bc.
