It is the most majestic cast horse statue with a rider, which has been preserved since Greek antiquity. It was pulled to pieces from an ancient shipwreck and has been completed in the tail and in the center of the trunk. The horse is attributed to intense galloping at the time of the race. On his right thigh, of the original sculpture, there is an engraved figure of Victory, holding a wreath in her raised hands, a seal common to purebred horses in antiquity. The movement and anatomy of the animal are rendered in a completely realistic way. The rider is young in age and size, and his facial features indicate that he must have been black. Its tiny and ugly form is in stark contrast to the proud, large animal. He turns his head to the left, and his hair is disheveled. He wears sandals and a tunic that flutters in speed, while in his left hand he would hold the reins and in his right the whip. The statue, the work of an unknown sculptor, must have been dedicated to an important sanctuary
