Roman Hercules Statue

In the extensively examined Roman vicus of Güglingen a street sanctuary is reconstructed, in which beside two Jupiter giant columns also an almost life-size sandstone sculpture of the god "Hercules" was set up.

The statue of Hercules was found in a cellar near the sanctuary together with other stone monuments from a religious context. Thus he was also responsible for the commercial traffic of journeys and the serious trade.

Hercules was responsible for the supervision of trade contracts and was the guardian god for weights, measures and proper coins.

He is depicted naked, with the club in his right hand, made from an olive tree and an apple in his left hand. Above the left forearm he wears the fur of a lion and over the chest runs the strap of his quiver for bow and arrow. The sculpture is combined with a scene from his childhood, when he was eight years old, when he strangled the two snakes that his stepmother Iuno placed in his cradle to kill him.

  • Height of the statue approx. 30cm
