CBS Register: clay. Greek rider. Horse with strapping, large neck, stiff mane.
PBS XVI: Greek rider. His flat headdress not unlike the hat of the Athenian cavalry men, and close to the “causia” of the Macedonian riders, is very different from the Persian peaked cap. The horse has a thick mane cut in a brush and well modelled. The eyes are pellets. Bridle and strappings are marked by lines of small circles on the head, neck and nose. There is a hole for a bridle (?) in the mouth.
