The sculpture is one of only a very few known surviving Hellenistic bronzes, dating from around 307 BC and an exceptional example due to its size and quality. It is now on display for the first time since its recent restoration.

Recent research has identified the subject as the Hellenistic king and general Demetrius I, known as “Poliorcetes” due to his renown in besieging enemy cities (ca. 336 – 283 BC). Together with his father, the Diadoch Antigonus I, Demetrius was the first successor to Alexander the Great (356 – 323 BC).
