    There s always the Doryphoros (Greek, 450 B.C.) although the figure is naked, he does have the proverbial fig leaves in the front.

      Failing that, Roman stuff generally has people clothed if they're
      politicians or secular leaders, such as this one of Augustus
      http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/users/morford/aug12.jpg
      or this one of the imperial family

      For paintings and such, Pompeii has some good selections of
      clothed people, such as family and street scenes.

      As for renaissance, try artists like Van Der Veden, Durer, and
      Lippi. Of course, most artists have nudes at some point in their
      career, but if you do a basic google image search, you're sure to
      find some scenes from everyday life or biblial scenes of modest
      people. Good luck!
