The centre of the room features the so-called "Dying Galatian", one of the best-known and most important works in the museum. 
It is a replica of one of the sculptures in the ex-voto group dedicated to Pergamon by Attalus I to commemorate the victories over the Galatians in the III and II centuries BC.
