SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED
This statue represents the Greek and Roman mythology ‘Laocoon’.
LaocoÃ¶n (/leÉªËˆÉ’koÊŠËŒÉ’n, -kÉ™ËŒwÉ’n/ Ancient Greek: Î›Î±Î¿ÎºÏŒÏ‰Î½, IPA: [laokÃ³É”Ën]), the son of Acoetes, is a figure in Greek and Roman mythology and the Epic Cycle. He was a Trojan priest who was attacked, with his two sons, by giant serpents sent by the gods. Though not mentioned by Homer, the story of LaocoÃ¶n had been the subject of a tragedy, now lost, by Sophocles and was mentioned by other Greek writers, though the events around the attack by the serpents vary considerably. The most famous account of these is now in Virgil’s Aeneid where LaocoÃ¶n was a priest of Poseidon (or Neptune for the Romans), who was killed with both his sons after attempting to expose the ruse of the Trojan Horse by striking it with a spear.
