NAME THAT BUTT! Round Two, Second Chance!

The Rules:

  • I post a butt and ONE clue, you guess who that butt belongs to in the comments. If you guess right, and you're the first person who does, you get 7.5 points. 
  • If you guess right after someone else already has guessed correctly, you get 5 points. 
  • The following Friday, I post the FULL backside, with another clue or two, and you may guess again. 
  • If you guess correctly on Friday or later, you only get 2.5 points. 
  • The next Tuesday, the answer is revealed, with a frontal view of the sculpture in question, and I'll keep a running tally of correct answers, with occasional updates of who is "winning." 
  • For Olympians, Greek AND Roman names are acceptable, because half of these sculptures were probably titled with their Roman names but in my head, they immediately translate to the Greek, and that's how I remember them when I'm organizing my photos.
  • The game will continue for as long as I have photographs of backsides to share, but a new NAME THAT BUTT may not be posted every week, depending on Things. 
  • **NEW** For TODAY'S BUTT, if you also correctly guess the title and artist of the sculpture in question, you can earn a BONUS 2.5 points.
Ready for the full backside and a few more clues?

Double the backsides, double the fun! So, two more clues:

2) Zeus once took on this shapely buttocks for his own to engage in a seduction.
3) If this bottom isn't an expert at mooning, no other butt ever will be.
You've got until Monday, July 29 at 11:59pm Eastern to guess for your 2.5 points!

NB: Round THREE's post will also be Round TWO's Reveal, and it is going live at 8:30am Eastern on July 30th so that more than just the night owls have a chance to take the first guess and the top spot!


  1. Ah, Artemis! I should've known!

  2. for the love of Thor please be Artemis and not Selene

  3. Ok, it has to be Artemis. Zeus disguised himself as her to seduce Callisto, her symbol is the crescent moon & she's often identified with Selene (goddess of the moon), and she had plenty to do with Callisto becoming Ursa Major... I can't think who else fits! Especially combined with the bow & the animal running at her feet.

  4. Wooohooo! Okay guess numero two is Europa. Hooray for my lack of knowledge! Loving the game though. #wildguess

  5. Almost forgot... sounds like Diana/Artemis.


Comments are Love!

(Nota Bene: During #NAMEthatBUTT season, all comments are moderated and your guesses are hidden until after the butt is revealed!)
