The so called Blond Kouros's Head of the Acropolis in Athens is the head of a lost marble statue of a young man (Kouros or Ephebe sculpture type) of ca 480 BC. It can be seen in the Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece (Inv. 689). The head and part of the pelvis were found in 1923 northeast of the museum site on the Acropolis. It belongs to the late archaic or early classical period (Severe style). The curly hair points more to the Archaic than the Classical period.
It measures 25 cm in the vertical, in the horizontal under the ears 12.5 cm and in the depth 22.8 cm. (Schrader 1939:197).
The original blond painting of the curly hair is faded. Only remains of the paint are visible today.
