Whether this figure really represents Theseus . . . . has been doubted. . . . The whole effect of the figure is admirable; and so universally have artists been attracted by its excellence, that more drawings have been made from it in the former and present Elgin rooms, than from all the other Athenian marbles put together . . . .--Elgin Marbles, V. II., Pp. 4-8. [P. 22.]
