The highly celebrated statue which since the times of Michael Angelo and Raphael, has graced the Belvedere of the Vatican, whence it has received its distinctive appellation, represents the youthful and indignant god at the moment of performing, by aid of his far-reaching and unerring arrows, some noble deed the sight of which fills him with pride. . . .--Braun's Introduction to the Study of Art-Mythology, pP. 21-22. [P. 34; excerpted from a 2-page citation from Braun's text.]
