Figurine of a horse

Description
Horses were a very popular shape of statuette in ancient Greece. They were often placed in burials, and some may have been children’s toys. Unusually, there is no evidence that this model originally had a rider.
This figure belonged to Lt. Co. LAD Montague, who donated over 800 artifacts to the museum.
