- Series: The Nereid Monument
Part of the first frieze, which is the lower, larger frieze at top of the podium of the Nereid monument. It represents a series of heroic combats.
This slab shows two foot soldiers and a horseman. To the left stands a foot soldier, facing left, covering his body with his shield. He is, probably, fighting with an opponent on the previous slab (slab 851). To the right of the slab is a combat between a horseman and a foot soldier. The horse rears up. The rider is a youth with flowing hair, wearing a petasos, tunic and chlamys. The weapons may have been painted.
This slab is a part of the monument as reconstructed.
