It’s a splendid monument, dynamic in its striking force, to memorialise a revered Greek hero. Unveiled in the early 1900s, it was created by the artist Lazaros Sochos. Kolokotronis, a General and premier leader of the War of Independence, had his most famous victory against the Ottomans at the 1822 Battle of Dervenakia. In full military attire, he is portrayed as turning his helmeted head towards the Old Parliament and purposely pointing forwards.

This is a nice statue on Kolokotroni Street in Athens. I believe the statue is of a general from the 1800's Greek War of Independence. It is framed nicely by the attractive Old Parliament building behind.

Theodoros Kolokotronis was a Greek general and the pre-eminent leader of the Greek War of Independence (1821–1829) against the Ottoman Empire. Kolokotronis's greatest success was the defeat of the Ottoman army under Mahmud Dramali Pasha at the Battle of Dervenakia in 1822. In 1825, he was appointed commander-in-chief of the Greek forces in the Peloponnese. Today, Kolokotronis ranks among the most prominent figures in Greece's War of Independence.
