- Curator's comments
- A complete version of this scene is at the Louvre (S 787), which is not identical to the British Museum one (which has, for example a Gorgon on the shield of the Greek warrior). For the theme, the relief is related to fragment 1895,0614.7, which also shows a fight between a Greek and an amazon.
The relief can be seen in two drawings owned by Charles Townley (2010,5006.378 and 2010,5006.389) and in sketches made by Nollekens (?) of Charles Townley's collection of terracotta reliefs: in 2010,5006.1914 as nr 16 (71). It is also depicted in a drawing by William Young Ottley (2006,0515.33).
