Horse and Rider on the Bocchus Monument


I’m not sure why but this portion of the Bocchus Monument just isn’t illustrated that much.  It’s important as a piece of mid 1st century BC comparative iconography for the use of the horse and rider motif on coinage.  On which I’ve blogged previously.  I’m indebted to this other blogger for the wonderful photographs documenting the Centrale Montemartini Museum so very well!  This post is almost as good an in person visit it is so thorough.  (It’s one of my favorite museums of all time.)
