As was noted in 2011 when the original plan of Sozopol Municipality for the statue’s restoration was developed, what the statue looked like has been known from coins minted by the city state of Apollonia Pontica.

Dimitrov reminds that in 2011, Bulgarian sculptor Boris Borisov created two human-sized bronze replicas of the ancient statue (each of which is 1.6 meters tall). One of them is kept in the office of Sozopol Mayor Panayot Reyzi, and the other – in the private museum called “South Tower" which is owned by Sozopol businessman Kiril Arnautski.
