The original Hercules Farnese (Ercole Farnese) is a marble sculpture presumably from the 3rd century AD, by the Athenian sculptor Glykon. It is the most famous copy of a lost original in bronze attributed to Lysippus, a sculptor of the 4th century BC.
It was found in 1546 at the Baths of Caracalla in Rome and immediately became part of the collection of classical sculpture of Cardinal Alexander Farnese, son of Pope Paul III. For generations it decorated the Farnese Palace, until in 1787 it was moved to Naples, along with the entire Farnese collection, which can be seen in the National Archaeological Museum.
