In 2010, two Kouroi were confiscated from antiquity smugglers at the modern village Klenia in Corinthia. An archaeological research at the area brought to light the missing pieces from the Kouroi, as well as an extensive cemetery. The statues, 1.82 and 1.78 meters tall, were are considered created in 530 – 520 B.C. They are made of Parian marble and were placed one next to the other at a visible point in the cemetery. These two statues were found broken into parts, as they were violently drug from the place on which they were found. It is probable that an agricultural machine also caused severe damage on the heads and chests of the statues.

Now they are allocated in the Archaeological Museum of Ancient Corinth, in order to be exhibited next to other finds from the cemetery of Klenia.
