Abstract

This reportage about underwater archeology is an opportunity to tell the story of the discovery of a statue of Adonis, in the river Herault, near a bridge pillar in the centre of Agde. The statue, which has become property of Denis Fonquerel, who discovered it, was almost fully restored and is now in the Louvre, to the right of the Victory of Samothrace, pending its return to Agde.
