This is the torso of an Archaic kouros, a representation of the great pankratiast Arrachion from Figaleia, who won in the Olympic Games of 572 and 568 B.C. The statue consists of two reunited parts, while the head, the arms and the legs are missing. The inscription----ALIAD is preserved on his chest. Arrachion went down in the history of the Olympic Games as the person who died from his opponent's lock while wrestling during the Olympiad of 564 B.C. His opponent, however, had previously accepted his defeat, therefore the judges (Hellanodices) declared Arrachion to be the winner although he was dead. The statue of the unfortunate athlete was also erected in his birthplace Figaleia, a city of ancient Arcadia.
