Head from a herm discovered at an excavation in Velia in 1966. The body of the herm had been discovered in 1962, with the inscription "Parmenides the son of Pyres the natural philosopher". It is unlikely that the sculptor knew what Parmenides looked like, and it is believed that this portrait is actually based on the bust of the Epicurean philosopher Metrodorus.
