OriginsEdit

The Discobolus StatueEdit

The Diskobolus of Myron ("discus thrower" Greek Δισκοβόλος, "Diskobólos") is a famous Greek sculpture that was completed towards the end of the Severe period, circa 460-450 BC. It is known through numerous Roman copies, both full-scale ones in marble, such as the first to be recovered, the Palombara Discopolus, or smaller scaled versions in bronze. Modern critics say the pose of the discus thrower is both inefficient and unlikely by modern standards.

Myron of EleutheraeEdit

Myron of Eleutherae (Ancient Greek: Μύρων) working c. 480-440 BC, was an Athenian sculptor from the mid-5th century BC. He worked almost exclusively in bronze, and though he made some statues of gods and heroes, his fame rested principally upon his representations of athletes.

EffectsEdit

The discus absorbed the athletic energy from the statue. Pros: Whoever picks up the discus gains incredible athletic prowess. Cons: Slowly turns the user into bronze in an attempt to recreate the statue that was lost.
