Abstract

Computer executed statistical procedures have been applied to the study of archaic kouroi in the hope of determining if any Egyptian influence can be detected. A comprehensive study of the proportions of the kouroi shows that certain kouroi are similar in proportions to the Egyptian second canon and that others are not. The kouroi most like the Egyptian canon span at least three-quarters of a century (late seventh to late sixth centuries B. C.) and several workshops, suggesting that, if the canonic principles were applied, they were widely known and that some sculptors followed them, while others did not.
