The present figure is a version of the Albertini Herakles, named for a marble statue now in the Museo Nazionale Romano. The hero would originally have had his lionskin hanging from his left forearm and either a bow, arrows or the apples of the Hesperides in his left hand, and his club in his right. The type is based upon a Greek original of the 4th century B.C. For the pose, see nos. 292 and 302 in Boardman, "Herakles," in LIMC.
