The life-sized marble statues of two brothers – Cleobis and Biton – were the votive offerings at the Sanctuary of Apollo by the city of Argos, which is located on the Argolis region of Peloponnese in Greece. Both the statues and one of the bases with inscription were found near the Treasury of the Athenians in 1893. They were dated approximately 580 BCE.
