Description: Laocoön and His Sons Antiphantes and Thymbraeus.
Roman copy of a Hellenistic original, marble, detail.

The authorship of this monumental sculptural group is assigned to the three ancient Greek sculptures - Hagesandros, Athenodoros and Polydoros of Rhodes, c. 175-150 BC.

Laocoön - the son of Acoetes, uncle of the Trojan prince Aeneas and a Trojan priest of Poseidon, warns the people during the Trojan War do not accept by the Achaeans the "Trojan Horse" as a gift, because it is a deadly deception. For revenge the Achaeans sent to him and his sons two serpents sent to Troy across the sea from the island of Tenedos.
