Title

Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius

Description

A bronze statue of Marcus Aurelius on horseback. This is the only surviving bronze statue of a non-Christian Roman emperor. Marcus’ stretched out arm is potentially an indicator that he is giving mercy. There used to be a barbarian cowering at the feet of the horse.
