Dexileos Stele (detail)

Detail of the Dexileos Stele. Visible are the holes where metal attachments would have been placed. On his leg a sword; in his right hand a spear; in his left hand the horse's reigns; and on his head, most likely a wide-brimmed hat, the petasos. His ephebic chamlys billows out behind him. Kerameikos Museum, Athens, P 1130, c.394 BCE.
