Description

Fragment of guilloche-bordered plaque with a portion of two horseheads showing.

Muscarella Publication: "Three fragments depicting overlapping chariot horses' heads like no. 21, right. One has a guilloche upper border, one a narrow band, the other a slightly wider one, suggesting three different plaques. A small fragment with two horse's feet may belong to one of these plaques. The backs are irregularly scored like no.21, as shown in back views."
