A: Fragment. Rest of a rider and a figure lying on the ground. From the rider, to right, only the rayed head, the left arm and the left leg remain. He points his spear at a human-headed winged figure with horse’s hoofs. Below, a second spear’s tip pointing at the nude figure lying on the ground, with long hair and raising her right hand in a defensive gesture. In the free field in front of the rider, an eight-pointed star. Above, fragment of an inscription: ωθε.
