Maybe a God? I think the statue was located at the entrance of the ancient market, but that's an old photograph, so I don't really remember..

  • Ah I see. It couldn't be a Triton (son of Poseidon), since it has feet. A Γίγαντας then, thanks! Maybe Thanos from the Avengers :) I don't remember about that Odeon.. With the Odeon of Herodes Atticus nearby, that seems logical. – gsamaras Jun 26 '19 at 17:22
  • @gsamaras Wikipedia images says the Triton is the One next to it on the right in the picture. – JoErNanO Jun 26 '19 at 18:15
  • Yes, exactly, I would agree. – gsamaras Jun 27 '19 at 6:40
