This is a support image for the Eros Farnese, known as the Eros Centocelle. It is another Roman copy that was made from the original Greek Eros of Thespiae. The cast is missing both of its legs and this Eros would have likely been holding a bow. It was found at Centocelle on the outskirts of Rome and dated back to the 1st century C.E. The sculpture stands at about 0.85m tall and is carved from marble. It currently resides in the Museum of Classical Archaeology, in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
