Salomon Reinach reproduced the statue of Apollo in his Répertoire de la Statuarie Grecque et Romaine, 1, Paris 1897, p.242, pl. 478 while it was still in the collection of the Vescovali family of dealers, Rome. The statue is illustrated in the volume with its early 19th-century restorations by the Antonio d’Este, a noted sculptor, restorer, director of the Vatican museums, and student of Antonio Canova. Today, the bow and arrow as illustrated, are lost.
