48, Horatius defends the bridge. He raises his sword at the centre, a grotesque face on his shield, followed by four naked men who are breaking the bridge with pickaxes. He is faced by warriors with shields and swords, one of them fallen. There are two figures in the water. The bridge has four arches. Mars stands in the clouds above, spear raised.
