The Morven kouros has close affinities, in terms of the material, scale and treatment of the body, to an example belonging to the Sounion Group found at Kamiros, Rhodes, now in the British Museum (no. 27, figs. 126-128 in Richter, Kouroi, Archaic Greek Youths), and also to a fragmentary example belonging to the Orchomenos-Thera Group found at Naukratis, now in Cairo (no. 61, figs. 204-205 in Richter, op. cit.). A related figure, grasping a lion, from Cyprus is regarded as an import into Cyprus from East Greece (see no. 17, p. 6 in Budde and Nichols, A Catalogue of the Greek and Roman Sculpture in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge).
