In 1757 Caffieri exhibited a plaster version a seated river god in the guise of an old bearded man at the Salon. He then presented a marble version to the l'Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture (Louvre, inv. no. MR 1773) two years later in 1759. There is another similar version in terracotta, signed and dated 1755, located at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge (inv. no. M.6-1992).
