The youthful muscular figure stands with his weight on his right leg, with both arms slightly pulled back. The type is likely a Roman adaption of a Greek original from the Classical Period. For the position of the arms and body modelling, but with the weight on the opposite leg, see the torso in Boston, no. 153 in M. Comstock and C.C. Vermeule, Sculpture in Stone: The Greek, Roman and Etruscan Collections of the Museum of Fines Arts, Boston.
