- A particular sculpture is an example of a type, not a type.
- Bolded title phrases are not also linked.
- "is thought to be..." never makes a wrong statement right or a deluded personal statement mainstream and encyclopedic: omit it always.
- "Nominally, it represents..." suggests that actually it represents something else.
- "a generic hermaphrodite being" rather than the mythic figure of Hermaphroditus himself is a solecism, like saying that a sculpture of Hercules might also be just a guy with a club..
- Yes, it's a hermaphrodite who may (or not) be the Hermaphroditus, rather than Hermaphroditus who may be a hermaphrodite, if u see what I mean. I'm just looking for a phraseology on this - I think art historians mainly argue it was a hermaphrodite form rather than a direct depiction of Hermaphroditus himself, though I'd welcome some expert citation on that point.

After my edit merging the first and third paragraphs into a more sensible order, the second paragraph still seems to refer to an instance rather than a type. Which is it referring to? Hairy Dude (talk) 00:21, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
More visual detail?
The accompanying photos of the statue, though of high quality, don't really supply solid evidence that this is a statue of a hermaphrodite at all. Far be it from me to say that we need more photos of cock, but hey, if the shoe fits. 220.127.116.11 04:17, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
Link title: Palazzo Massimo alle Terme
Clarified the link title for the National Museum of Rome. Palazzo Massimo alle Terme is part of the museum, not a separate institution.
