Seller: getod_4 (38) 100%, Location: Sofia, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 173438639210 Ancient Thracian horseman Thrace, ca. 3rd century BC. Description: Classical Antiquities. Eastern Europe, Northern Greece, Roman period, Thrace, ca. 3rd century BCE to 3rd century CE. A finely cast bronze rider. The rider gestures with an upraised right hand showing two pointing fingers, and an outspread left hand, palm facing upward. Weighs- 34,74 g Size- Н 66 мм. Х 47мм. This is an example of a Thracian horseman (also known as the Thracian Rider or the Thracian Hero), a recurring motif that persists from the Hellenistic period into the Roman period in the region of Thrace. These figures are often depicted on the funerary stelae of lower and middle class Roman cavalrymen; they seem to refer to a specific cult of Heroes, which was based in Philippi and whose name is often accompanied by the epithets "soter" (savior) and "answerer of prayers" (epekoos). Condition: Ancient, Material: Bronze
