The Rampin Horseman is a masterpiece of Archaic art, which blends Attic seriousness with the rich decorative tradition of eastern Greece. The head, which is original, is placed on a mold taken from a fragmentary equestrian group in the Acropolis Museum in Athens. The identity of the horseman is uncertain. We appear to be in the presence of a hero or a member of the Athenian aristocracy-unless the crown of leaves that he wears is a victory prize awarded in one of the Panhellenic games.
