Discobolus, Greek for "discus thrower", is a famous Greek bronze sculpture from around 460 B.C. The statue itself has been lost, but it is known to us today through numerous Roman copies, both full scale and smaller. The statue was spoofed in the coloring book Museum of Monster Art with Herry Monster taking on the role of the discus thrower.

The first copy found, Discobolus Palombara, was discovered in 1781. Adolf Hitler bought it in 1938, and it is currently housed in the National Museum of Rome. The statues have often been identified with the Olympic Games.
