KleovisandViton.jpg - These Kouros represent two historical personages, who, by their great arete (virtue), just before death, attained Ektheosis (deification).  These young men were Kleovis and Viton.  Their story is detailed in Herodotus'Histories (Book I, Chapter 31).  The statues in this image were sculpted by Polymedes and are in the Delphi Museum. They were a gift to Apollo from the people of Argos to Delphi and date from approximately 580 BCE. 

Kleovis and Viton were the sons of Cydippe, the Priestess of Hera at Argos.  When the oxen did not arrive in time to transport their mother to an important ceremony, her sons took the yoke of the carriage and dragged her to the temple.  Their struggle was so extraordinary that Cydippe prayed that they receive the best gift a man can receive.  The brothers died in their sleep.  Because of their valor, the Gods deified them.  Kleovis and Viton then beheld the Divine World....and they smiled.  They are Kouros.  (For the direct quote from Herodotus, see the entry in the Glossary for Kleovis and Biton)
