“Hermes and Dionysus”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

At the very end (right side) of the Olympia museum. Beautiful statue attributed to Praxiteles (worth seeing even if not by him!)

“Incredible statue”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

This statue predates Michealangelo's work by about 2000 years and makes his work look like an amateur.

“Nice piece of marble and history”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

It's ancient, it's made of beautiful marble, it's a excellent craft, it represents a civilization... But wait, it's just a statue!

“Make your visit more interesting”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Is it really by Praxiteles ? And even if it is, is it any good ? There are doubts. Anyway, before you go, read the wikipedia entry for "Praxiteles". It'll make your visit much more interesting.
