Socrates Bust, British Museum

Socrates (469-399 BCE) was the intellectual father of Greek philosophy. His self-denying pursuit of true knowledge brought him into conflict with the piety laws of his native Athens, where his eventual prosecution led to enforced suicide. His physical appearance was famously unattractive, belying the inner beauty of his spirit. Roman copy of a lost Greek original 380-360 BCE. (The British Museum, London)
