West pediment of the Temple of Aphaia

West pediment of the Temple of Aphaia

This picture, taken at the Munich Glyptothek, depicts the sculptures taken from the west pediment of the Temple of Aphaia on Aigina. It depicts a scene from the Trojan War familiar from Homer. The style of the sculpture here is “Archaic”, and on this basis it has been argued that the west pediment is older than the one on the eastern (front) side.
