Notes

Summary:
This statue from Pergamon in modern Turkey may be a Roman copy of a third-century BC bronze statue that was part of a group commemorating a Hellenistic victory over the Galatians, who were Celtic settlers in Asia Minor. In 278 BC several Celtic tribes crossed over into Asia Minor against whom the Attalids of Pergamum fought in defense of the Greek cities in the region. Around 225 BC, two great monuments were set up on the acropolis at Pergamum to celebrate those victories. The inscribed bases still survive and permit later marble copies to be recognized.
