27. Horsemen

The subject is not a common one on Greek scarabs. It is not always clear whether the male is riding or standing beside the horse, as trainer. Few are armed. Cf. the frontal horseman with a warrior (28/131). For the subject, G. Pisano in Alle soglie della classicità (Studi Moscati) II (1996) 917-924.
