Subject Description: The jockey, a small negroid boy, hunched on the back of a large gallopping horse, turns his puckered face to the left, as if to shield it from the full force of the wind.
Date Description: As the group was found in a late Hellenistic shipwreck, it is difficult to determine provenance and date. Further, the jockey seems to belong to a later period, stylistically, than the horse.
Condition: Nearly complete
Condition Description: Parts of the body and the tail are restored.
