The University wishing to honor Adamantios Korais one of the most important representatives of the Greek enlightenment, assigns to Ioannis Kossos the creation of his statue. The work was completed after his death by his student Georgios Vroutos. Korais is presented a size larger than normal, sitting, wearing a European costume. The work presents classical influences and follows the European tradition for depicting intellectuals. The unveiling took place in 1874.
