Compared with 74.51.539, this jug shows a horse with harness and a man riding sidesaddle. The horse's forelock is treated particularly elaborately; the fan-shaped embellishment can be compared with those of the horses on the Amathus sarcophagus (74.51.2453). The rider holds the "lead line" in his left hand and a goad in his right.
