Marble relief (Block XXXII) from the South frieze of the Parthenon. The frieze shows the procession of the Panathenaic festival, the commemoration of the birthday of the goddess Athena.
Block XXXII shows a chariot, marshal and in the car the remains of a soldier and charioteer. The soldier holds a large round shield on his left arm. The carriage of the chariot and the hub of a wheel are visible below. Metal reins, which are now lost, were inserted in drill-holes.
For more information on the chariot-race see South frieze Block XXV. The explosion of the Parthenon in 1687 damaged the South frieze the most.
