Archaeological object, Sculpture | 442 - 438 B.C.

Depicted here are four horsemen (96-99). Predominating is the third rider (98) who is is fully shown on his galloping steed. He wears a sleeveless chiton, belted at the waist, and he turns his head (most of which has broken off) outward toward the viewer. On the left part of the block two more horsemen (96 and 97), the first partly hiding the second, ride their horses abreast at a gallop. At the right side of the block is the last of the four (99), wearing a sleeved chiton and arranging his hear-band with his right hand.
