Glyptotek Drawings 
The wounded soldier depicted here comes from the west pediment of the Temple of Aphaia in Aegina (ca. 485–480 B.C..). The triangular frame of the pediment (the space formed by the pitch of the roof) determined the composition of the sculptural program, which represents a battle between Greeks and Trojans. The fallen warrior, lying on his side, is situated at the far right corner of the architectural element.
