Draped Warrior, 510-500 BC, Bronze, 5 15/16 inches. Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut, USA.  

This is one of my favorite statues from antiquity. The long hair indicates that this warrior is a Spartan, and the transverse crest suggests he is an officer. Although the statue is very small, the figure has a lot of attitude.
