In six chapters the author, an archaeologist with a strong interest in ancient mythology and religion, discusses the myth and history of the horse during the Bronze Age and the late Roman Empire. At the center of the first two chapters lie the Homeric epics that describe happenings of the early Iron Age and the late Bronze Age. Chapter three is dedicated to the horse from the Hittite and Etruscan viewpoint, while chapters four and five discuss horses in Classical and Hellenistic art. Both eras live on in Roman art, which, like Greek sculpture, immortalized horses in paintings, jewelry, and coins. German text.
