The Dying Gaul

The Dying Gaul is a reblog posted by An Archaeologist’s Diary on January 21, 2018. I’ve always been fascinated with this statue as it is a poignant reflection of a brave Celtic warrior who has fallen in battle and is facing death. What struck me is how the Greeks and Romans respected the noble Celtic warrior who demonstrated courage in defeat and when faced with his mortality.

Hope you enjoy!
