Two horsemen galloping. A rider is depicted on a trotting horse. Another horseman with a broad-brimmed hat (petasos) rides a proud, galloping horse. Traces of green color have been found in the folds of the rider’s cape (chlamys), whereas the corner containing the horse’s hind legs was identified among the fragments from the storerooms and restored.
